	Try Perkin Elmer.  I used their approximately 20 year old instrument for
enzyme assays with methylumbelliferone as a fluorochrome substrate, and it
was a really robust piece of equipment.  They sell a newer version that is
a digital display, but as of 2 years ago, they still sold the robust,
"tank" model.  So they should still have instruments available.  Good luck.
