Hi Michael,
	Here we have an ABI sequencer since 1988, and probably the most 
important problem you will find with this kind of sequencers is the money, the 
rest, I think is quite superior to the rest:
	-Currently, with the latest models you could run up to 48 samples at 
the same time
	-The last update software and glasses (48 cm) would allow you to obtain 
up to 700-750 bp (even with the "normal" glasses you obtain 500-550 daily 
without problems).
	I am afraid I can't help you with Pharmacia DNA sequencers (ALF) 
because I have never met anyone who uses them-
	Hoping this infomation is useful for you...
