We are thinking of buying either a Helios gene gun or a biolistic 
PDS-1000/He unit (with Hepta adaptor) from Bio-Rad for making 
transgenic lines by bombardment.  Most people seem to have the 
latter.  Does anyone have experience of both (or of another system), 
or have strong views on which is best?  Any info will be gratefully 
received and reported back.
