Microarrays - what does the consumer want?

(excuse the cross-posting)
I am trying to start up a new company based on some IP that has arisen from
our work. We are looking at developing a novel system to read microarrays,
potentially without the need for sample labelling, but are currently lacking
good market data as to what people out there in the labs actually want from
their plate readers?

I'd be grateful if anyone out there using microarray readers, for
applications such as genomics, proteomics, or ligand screens, could give me
some idea as to what the key things are that  they would look for in
purchasing a new instrument. What alterations would really improve ease of
use etc.

Thanks
Duncan
