Hi Jeanne,
    We have been using this system for a few months now, and are quite
impressed with it. We have generated nearly ten different mutations, some of
which were quite complex (3 AAs in a row) and it has never failed to work
(well, the VERY first time, but....). I highly recomend the product. Good
