I am using a FluorImager (Molecular Dynamics/Amersham Pharmacia Biotech)
to detect sGFP(S65T) expression in plants.
The sGFP(S65T) is almost the same as EGFP.
It works fine.
If you are interested in, please check my paper.
Y. Niwa et al., Non-invasive quantitative detection and applications
of non-toxic, S65T-type green fluorescent protein in living plants.
Plant J. (1999) 18, 455-463.
The FluorImager also works fine to detect EGFP expression in animal cells.
