Btw, here is yet another statement from a PrintFix user, found by google at http://www.nifty-stuff.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=26&p=2
"I have the PrintFix software. After profiling my Canon i960 the ColorVision test image following a cfriends.com refill kit looks the same as that printed with OEM ink. However my daughters printed macro image of a panzy has way too much magenta in it. The point of all this is that ColorVision tech support made the statement to me that PrintFix was not meant to function with 3rd party ink. I was at a loss for words for a few seconds. If not for 3rd party inks and paper, what is the point??"

That's my impression as well. Obviously they only support a limited set of printers. Thus I also guess it is just a trichromatic CIS scanner plus a database of calibration data for correcting the scans for the different typical reflectance spectra produced by the different supported printers.
Or, I wonder whether it may just be that they have decided to optimise the test charts for the various tonal responses of the different
printers. (if you look at their "how it works" section on the web site,
step 1 is to choose the test chart for the specific model of
printer to be profiled)
