With footprinting you probably mean fingerprinting?? Well we use a
VGI(Visible Genetics Inc.) from Open Gene. Its a very good and simple
machine. The gels are also easy to make, it will take you 4 minutes to
do so. They have to glasses glued together than you poor the gel
inbetween. Put it in de polymeraser (UV light) and 'toast' it for 3
minutes and ready you are. So very simple.
It gives nice resulst to. Well hope i helped you out.
