A person claimed he is from Bio-Rad called me this afternoon and asked why
I said above although he was claiming to try to help me out. He also
claimed that Dr. XXX, a professor who bought a Bio-Rad machine and a guy I
worked with for a while, extremely satisfied with that machine.

I think I should make following statements:

1)The person who called me(sorry I forgot your name) should ask Dr.XXX to
write a recommendation for whatever he likes. My opinion has nothing to do
with his.

2)I had some experience with Bio-Rad CE manual setup(100?) and my feeling
was really bad. It wasted a lot of my time and made me be suspicious to the
advantage of CE technology. I also personally involved and watched the
setup of BioFocus 3000 in Dr. XXX's lab and my feeling was that the system
was not very user friendly compared with other similar systems by other
manufacturers. Because I had left that lab before the system had been
really figured out by the  talent users(how long? I forgot and you guess
:)), I have no opinion on resolution, reproducibility etc.

3) I had assisted my friends to have bought two ABI systems in China. They
shared their happiness for the machines all the time with me. I have
nothing to do personally with ABI either.
