Good

My lab bought a UVP gel documentation system 3 years ago. The hardware was good but the software which controlled the system was prone to freezing. Every 2 or 3 days of continued use, you had to close the programme and restart it.
May your PCR products be long, your protocols short and your boss on holiday

I liked the setup from Bio-Rad and it was good. With Kodak, it just did not have the sensitivity but then it was old.

I had use alpha innotech, UVP and Bio-Rad and I love Bio-Rad's Gel doc. Easy to use, I can photograph big gels. Is a little bit costly than other systems but is worth the $$$.

I've used alpha innotech and gave it a 5 out of 10.
The software was the main problem.

Lately I've been using DNR Bio-Imaging Systems.
It works with any software and I can do Et-Br staining, chemiluminescence……
I've even taken picts of ponceau-western blots with it.
