DNA pooling.

Hi everyone,

I am working on a DNA pooling experiment in which I
pooled DNA from a number of individuals and then a 
polymorphic marker is amplified via PCR.  The genotypes
of these individuals are known.  My objective is to
see if I can get the same allele frequency distribution
from a single PCR with pooled DNA as I do PCR with 
individual samples.  Besides fluorescent primers,
has anyone tried other methodologies to quantiate
the pcr bands?  I'd be grateful if you could share
your experience.  Thank you.
