 +====== Microspotting ======
 +The SpotBot from ArrayIt costs 18,000. Important add-on is the wash station (dips the needle in a sonicator bath) for $2,600. When working with proteins cooling may be important ($8,000 add on).
 +The SpotBot has excellent precision (better than 10 microns) once it finds the first spot place. The trick is this initial alignment. The smallest spotter needle gives ~ 50 micron diameter. Hydrophobic surfaces stop the spots from getting bigger.
 +The Nanoprint from ArrayIt is set up to work with fuducials but the equipment costs ~ $100,000.
