Aria to Aria II upgrade...Day 2


Getting closer! Much of the Fluidics Board is hooked up and ready to go, the internal fluidic lines have been swapped. Today we'll tackle the flow cell, sample chamber, and sort block, and hopefully later, software and alignment. It probably seems like nothing has been done yet, but let me tell you, lots has been done. Bill and Scott (BD Engineers) have filled a 3' x 3' x 1.5' box with parts from the Aria I. Which reminds me, we'll have to find a new home for some of these parts, and the rest of them, well looks like I'll have to dig through some old Make magazines and see what we can put together.
