Richard Cook had a question about the 80 lane combs.
They are 80 well combs from the Gel Company. We load them by hand partly
because we do custom sequencing; that is we may use 4 or 5 cyclers for a
bunch of reactions to accomodate primer conditions etc. Not that much
longer than doing the 64 wells. The well size is the same as 64 well comb.
It does add a problem because the 96 well upgrade looks for a narrower lane
than the 80 lane comb. Requires more manual tracking when there are lanes
The gel company also makes a 96 well comb that is 0.2mm thick to be used
with the standard plates. Bruce Roe's group uses them and loads with a

CAK80U-020 is the part number for 80 well
CAK96C-020 is for 96 Custom Silk
CAK96U-020 is for 96 Sharkstooth
The custom silk provides a larger well.
