I have seen occasionl references to using a commercial flat-bed scanner, such 
as a Hewlett-Packard Scanjet IIsx, as a densitometer.  I do a lot of 
autoradiography and Western blotting and would like a relatively inexpensive 
densitometer.  Hardware and software recommendations are most welcome.  
Positive or negative experiences also sought.  Thanks everyone.
