We use a Kodak/IBI digitiser and pen, along with IBI's MacVector software. We
have been quite happy with both. The digitiser is just called "Gel Reader";
I can't find a product number on it.

The company is:
International Biotechnologies, Inc.
New Haven, Conn.
(800) 243-2555

(BTW, I have no affiliation with the above!)

Hope this helps.
