I have been using the BioQuant system by R&M Biometrics for years and I love
it!  It is a true color system so it really does't matter what your chromagen
is.  I'm using the Windows 98 version (upgraded a few months ago).  I use it
for cell proliferation studies, area analysis, density and bone morphology.  It
has even more functions that I do not use at this time (but ya never know). It
is an open system in that the user can configure the system his/her own needs. 
Please note that I have NO affiliation with this company, I just LOVE their

Their number is 800-221-0549.  They also have a web site but I lost my bookmark
file so I don't have it handy at this time.
