Barring problems with electronics in this new machine (very, very
unlikely with BTX), ECM 630 should be an excellent choice.
It actually looks better than Bio-Rad. 

BTX made one of the first commercially available electroporators.
Genetronics is founded by one of the well known investigators
in the field of electroporation and electropfusion [a field now almost 
unexistent]. If the price is right, I'd choose ECM 630 over 
Gene Pulser II.
