Dear Thas,

	I am an Applications Specialist supporting the ALF/ALFexpress 
product line for Pharmacia Biotech. In response to your question, the 
Staden format (now commonly known as SCF) has been supported as an output 
option from our software for some time. Our original OS/2-based software 
package, ALF Manager, could export the original Staden format curves. The 
Staden format has gone through considerable revision and the latest 
version (#3, I think) is now an export option of our current Win95-based 
sequencing software, ALFwin. 

	You may also be interested in a neat utility called Chromas from 
Conor MacCarthy which reads SCF and some other format curves. Chromas is 
available from:

	If I can be of further assistance please get in touch.
