Scanalytics/CSPI has a system called RFLPscan which does exactly what
you are looking for. For more information, you can call Chuck Vecoli
at 508 663 7598 ext. 2300 or email cvecoli at cspi.com
The system runs on PC in the Microsoft WIndows envionment. The price
should be under $10,000 but I am not 100% sure.
