Q. I need a Lyme LIterate Doctor in MA Moving to MA - son has chronic Lyme

A. Hi! Where are you moving to? I'm here in Boston with early Lyme that I hope is not going chronic (the treatment I've taken so far is only suppressing it, and it comes back if I stop antibiotics).

Apparently there is a Dr. Sam Donta who works in Falmouth and Boston: 508-539-6666. But he is pretty busy.

1 describes the use of multiplex dPCR in millions of picoliter droplets to measure the ratio of mutant to wild-type genes in biological samples.
Recent progress in dPCR technology has included the demonstration of multiplex dPCR for the quantification of [greater than or equal to] 5 DNA targets (i.e., the number of copies counted) in picoliter droplets in a single assay (25).In addition to detecting multiple targets simultaneously, using picoliter volumes for dPCR has the major advantage of the ability to quantify targets across a relatively large range of input DNA concentrations (24).
In order to ensure quality and reliability at these high speeds, Memjet uses advanced dye colorants.The printhead's 1-2 picoliter ink droplets absorb into typical substrates in milliseconds, ensuring that the all types of media are completely inked upon exiting the print path.
Examples of NGS arrays include random arrays of beads captured in an array of picoliter reaction chambers (PicoTiterPlate), as in the Roche/ 454; random arrays of adapter-ligated genomic DNA fragments bound to immobilized primers on a surface, as in the Illumina/Solexa; and random arrays of beads bound on a surface, as in the Life Technologies/AB SOLiD (e.g., the SOLiD 4 can hold 400 000 000 beads) (Fig.
Future work will use a piezoelectric appliance that can accurately dispense picoliter volumes of probes at precise coordinates.
Sensing in picoliter to attoliter volumes might create new problems in the development of microreactors for sensing and novel phenomena in very small channels.
6, 7, 11 or 14 picoliter drop sizes versus the 80 picoliter drops commonly found in ocher technologies.
A noncontact approach to ligand deposition on the substrate uses piezoelectric tips for accurate dispensation of capture molecules on the array surface in picoliter to nanoliter quantities.
