Here's my question: Does the BluePippin now do everything that the PippinPrep can do? Or are there resolution/recovery differences between the two, even though they are listed as being able to recovery virtually the same size fragments?

Insight from people who either have both, or have used both is most welcome.

We purchased a BluePippin long ago and it has always had the ability to resolve both long and short fragments, dependent upon which gel cassette and program was run. What the BluePippin has that the regular PippinPrep doesn't is the ability to perform Pulse Field Electrophoresis for resolution of larger molecules.
