Hi everybody,

we are interested in purchasing a chemiluminescence imager for Southerns 
(single copy genes), Northerns and, maybe the occasional in-situ 
hydridisation or pcr.
We've got information material from some suppliers/producers - namely from 
Syngene (MultiGenius, ChemiGenius), UVP (BioChemi System, OptiChemi 
System), Alpha Innotech (ChemiImager 5500-5).
Does anybody use one of those systems and would like to share her/his 
experience? Does one of these systems actually allow to use a dark room 
cabinett (for blots) AND has a microscop option (C-mount for in-situ pcr or 
FISH)? The information sheets are not very clear on this, sometimes. 
Does anybody use a different system and is satisfied with it?
We would highly appreciate you input! If this topic is of interest to 
others, I may post a summary.
Thanks in advance!
