I have.  I'm not sure if it's as sensitive as they "claim", but I can say
that it is definitely much more sensitive than AP.  From zero signal on AP
to a "blasting" exposure using the ECL.  It's less work than AP, too.  We
use it all the time now.

I've gone up to 500 ug on a 1.5mm gel using the 10-well spacers.
