	Just a point of clarification; LI-COR's sequencer DOES require fluorescent
tags. I know of no automated sequencer that does not require some sort of
label. The difference between their tags and those of ABI is, as Peter
Gegenheimer says, that they emit in the infrared range.
	We have had a LI-COR machine since this Spring and it is generally as
Peter Gegenheimer describes it in his ad.
