the "Eijen" <sic> for fluor-PCR?

Greetings, all.  A colleague just asked me about an instrument she only knows
as "The Eijen" (spelling could be _way_ off here, let's all think
phonetically!).  It evidently detects results of allele-specific PCR (using
fluroescent label) without use of a gel or imager... supposedly a relatively
small-ticket item.  Has anyone heard of this device? Was my colleague
misinformed? Any illuminating comments will be appreciated, as always!
