Fellow Researchers,
	We had bought a Perkin elmer Geneamp system 2400 thermal cycler
around 1.5 yrs back.It had initially given satisfactory results, but
after 7-8 months of working it was erratic in its amplification.Infact It
used to give amplification intermitently,which caused loss of 7 months of
labour and lots of chemicals till we finally realised that the machine had
gone bad.
	The Indian agents here repaired it, but it has the problem where a
couple of wells don't give any amplification.
	This is not a isolated case.In Mumbai (INDIA) there are 4 pcs of
same model with problems.
	I would like to if there are others in the World who are having
problems with the 2400 PCR system especially from underdeveloped
