Subject:      Re: argon laser replacement

     Our company makes many different laser-based scanning instruments, several
     with Argon ion lasers.  The manufacturer is erring on the safe side, if the
     power supply is failing it MUST be replaced.  This is not unusual since
     power supplies have a finite lifetime similar to the laser head.

Subject:      Re: BIOT: M'satellites, fluor sequencers etc

We're acquiring the new ALFexpress and discovered that to replace its
laser will cost approx $10K, whereas the power source is cheap. With the
previous ALFs the power source is surprisingly expensive (and bulky)
whereas the laser is relatively cheap.

Subject:      MicroPlate Conference: MipTec'96

I am coorganizer of the MipTec'96 Conference to be held in Basel,
Switzerland, June 24-27, 1996.  The purpose of the conference is to
bring together professions who design, use or support microplates in

bio-based research, with the goal of encouraging information exchange

and stimulating further innovation in this core technology.
Sessions will address applications, designs, engineering aspects,
detection systems, mechanical and electronic standards, data
management, software support, handling instrumentation, robotics, etc.

  Poster sessions and a large vendor display are also scheduled.

We are in the process of defining the program for this conference and

need the input from all disciplines  involved.  We welcome your
comments and suggestions for topics, plenary speakers and other
aspects that can contribute to achieving the conference goals.
Please send any information that you can provide to me at ARRT
International, Inc. at "arrtintl@aol.com" or "xlev09a@prodigy.com".

Our address is P.O. Box 1838, New Milford, CT 06776; tel: 203-355-
5195; fax: 203-355-5975.  If you wish to be on the mailing list for
the forthcoming conference announcements, please include your address,

 phone and fax number.
