So you're saying it's fine to buy the kits and use them with no (or
little) understanding of the underlying chemistry?

I agree that kits are a great time-saver (I have to say that, we sell them
(-:) but I would urge every grad student to understand what they're
doing.  That in itself will save wasted time on the 'phone to tech support
