We downloaded a program from NCSA called GelReader which looks really nice to use.  It has the 
capabilities to determine mobility, density and calculate MW.  But I never could get it to do 
the MW for me, everything else worked real well.  It may have to do with the computer we 
installed it on, we've had a few glitches with it in the past.  I even contacted NCSA 
technical support and they were great but we still couldn't get it to do MW.  Again, its 
really easy to use and looks like a pretty good one.  If you download it I would like to hear 
how it worked for you.  If you can get it to work I'll spend some more time on it.
