DGGE system

I think CSGE or MADGE would be a good choice. The Dcode is so clumsy to run.
For MADGE you need to buy a dedicate instrument for gel running but should
be much cheaper than Dcode. I am using CSGE in our lab which is based on a
similar principle as DGGE but can apply on a conventional manual sequencing
gel apparatus. I have recently modified the original protocol and run 800
samples / gel  in 9 hours. This is much faster than Dcode
