Just a few things...
1. The new dRhodamine dyes from PE-ABI. I've tried them and they work
great...although I'm not sure about the small amount of DNA that can be
used in a
reaction (maybe really low levels of ultra-pure DNA in Foster City), but
in the 'real world'.
2. What about people with 373a's? Are you not just a little bit annoyed
being able to use these dyes??? What are PE-ABI doing about this?
3. I recently had an XL upgrade to one of my 377's (at no small cost)
why is it
that in about 30 gels (at 48 lanes each) I have to re-track EVERY LANE ON
Talk about a weak point. Can someone at PE-ABI write some decent
PLEASE?? My other 377 uses the older software as gets it correct about
90% of the
time. Not bad for an 'old timer'!!!!!!!
Oh, and before I forget (let's call this point 4...) will everyone use
cheaper??) Amersham dye terminators if they don't want to/can't use the
dye kits? How many poeple already use them? I found NO difference
between the kits ('old' ABI and Amersham) when used. So will people go
for a saving
or better performance?
A bit of discussion if you please!
