I just had to comment on this part of the email-- Having recently touched
the plates with the high-voltage on, by accident of course, It is not
something that anyone should wish upon someone. Perhaps that is why I am
quite charged by your comments. I thought this list was supposed to be a
forum for people in flow cytometry. I think it's wonderful that you run
400 to 600 samples a day, however, have you ever had to sit and sort 60
million cells in a day? If so, you would see that being able to look at
50,000 cells/second is quite an advantage over 3,000 cells/second. Also,
having high speed allows one to sort and have time to put in a vote. Let's
keep it nice. Nastiness is not necessary.
