Hello, James,
Can't help on that...I am facing the same dillema...but could not
confirm that there are 16/48-capillary models for the MegaBACE 1000
(APBiotech).  In fact, the MegaBACE have 96 capillaries arranged in
16-capillary arrays.  Anyway, it would be nice if there was such medium
throughput alternative in the market.  Heat among the companies would
increase, and prices would "decrease"!
