Our lab has been really happy with the AlphaImager made by Alpha
Innotech.  I also looked at a demo from UVP which I liked, but it seemed
to be a little more complicated software-wise.  My experience with Biorad
was that it was probably a good piece of equipment, but I couldn't set up
a demo with them except to get a copy of the software to try
out.  Alpha-Innotech has been very good in the support dept.  I figured if
Biorad couldn't bother to sell me one, I'd never be able to get any
customer support.
