I purchased a system from MVI for 6000$ which includes the scope and
dissection stage.  I love it but then again I have very limited
experience with other systems.  It has one joy stick which allows quick
and easy pick up and delivery and makes it real easy to whack those
stupid tetrads until they break open.  There is a picture of it in the
Guthrie and Fink Meth. in Enzymol. book. 

MVI, 11 Robbie Rd. P.O. Box 518, Avon, MA 02322,

Ask to speak to Barry Alberts, he is the man who puts the system together.

Hope this helps, Morrie
