Hi all
first thing I want to say is that we have moved into our new facilities 
(yahoo) in sunny, Parlier CA - so my e-mail and address has changed.

To Jan:
We have the AlphaInnotech setup and we have been very pleased with silver 
stain, coumassie, SYPRO ruby, EtBr on agarose and acrylamide gels.  The 
only problem we had was getting resolution high enough for our 2-D protein 
I would encourage you to review each companies analysis sofware before 
purchasing - cameras are cameras, but the analysis software can make or 
break your satifaction.

New address as of Oct 2001:
Deanne Bell
USDA Agricultural Research Service
9611 S. Riverbend Avenue
Parlier, CA 93648
(559) 596-2806
(559) 596-2791 fax
