Dear Dr. Fritsch:

It's nice to hear that you are so satisfied with Sequencher.  Perhaps
you did not realize it, but Sequencher can read Pharmacia/ALF and LI-COR
chromatogram files just as it reads ABI files.  There are several
programs that allow you to read DOS disks on your mac, or if you are
networked, you can copy the files directly from your ALF software system
to the Mac where you have Sequencher.  If you make sure that the file
name has the extension ".ALF", Sequencher should recognize it as a 
Pharmacia file and convert it automatically.
