Are you sure of your solutions? You didn't say
anything about your gel concentration. Once, we made a
mistake in the gels concentrations and it went (a lot)

We are not considering the current when running our
2nd dimension gels but we are considering power ...
Here is our protocol:
Step 1. 2.5W per gel during 30 minutes (maximum of
600V or 400mA)
Step 2. 100W for all gels for a maximum of 5 hours
(maximum of 600V or 400mA ; I think it's 5W for all
gels for an overnight run but I don't have the
protocol here).
What are your other parameters?

Bart, I'm also a university student in Belgium but at
the ULg and working with 2D-DIGE. If you have any
other questions, feel free to ask.
