About 4 years ago I used Boehringer's Genius kit, which uses a
biotin/alkaline phosphotase, if I recall correctly.  At that time, there
were a few bugs in the system, but it still worked pretty well.  They have a
good-sized manual (~ 75-100 pages at the time) that tells all the different
uses and conditions for each use.  Their technical services line also had an
extension devoted exclusively to the Genius kit.  Good luck!
