Choosing a PCR machine

I also bought the PE gene amp 2400 and have been very happy with 
it. It probably isn't that much better than the MJ machine, but I 
can say from personal experience that the service from PE is 10x 
better than MJ. So if the extra service isn't worth a little 
extra money, then buy an MJ.  Be warned ... they are back-logged 
and you will have to wait your turn in line.
