Do you want to grab the electropherogram information? I know that "DNA
for Windows" is able to read the trace files. It can be found at

http://bcf.arl.arizona.edu/tools/abi-upload.php3 has a program which
converts your tracefile into comma-separated values. This gives the
option of re-creating the curve in spreadsheets.
