We anticipate purchasing a number of DNA sequencing machines early next
year and are interested in what might be coming out of Perkin-Elmer
soon.  As you know, they are forming a company with Venter to use their
new technology to sequence the entire human genome in about 3 years. 
Have any of you heard anything about how the new machine works?  It
sounds like a multicapillary machine, perhaps with highly multiplexed
detection, but the press releases don't give anything about design or
performance.  Any info would be appreciated.
