We have a Pharmacia Aekta and a BioRad Workstation. The Pharmacia

technical assistants or students just repeating it, I'd recommend
Pharmacia. But if you want a system that students or technical
assistants can understand and develop new methods on it, the simple
Biorad user interface might be better.

Not regarding that the Pharmacia systems are much more expensive, I
