Who has good (or bad) experience with an automatic or semi-automatic zone
reader for microbiological agar diffusion assays of antibiotics?

In our lab we use both the USP (5+1 dose level, on 9 cm petri dishes) and
the Ph. Eur (3+3 dose level, on 25 cm square plates) designs.

Any information on suppliers and makes of such equipment, as well as
experiences with the use of such equipment would be welcome.
