I am also interested. I phoned Ambion this mornig to ask for
a sample of their magic stuff, unfortunately couldn't reach
anybody. I'll try again later.
The clontech rep offered a free sample, but I think the
sensivity thing from Ambion is much more interesting than
clontech's Quickhyb, at least for me.

So long
