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.

Microfluidic devices are labs on chips consisting of intricate channels of sizes between sub-micrometre to sub-millimetre which control the precise movements of minuscule fluids usually within the range of nano and picolitres. Microfluidic systems have shown potential in wide-ranging applications from inkjet printing, blood cell separation, genetic analysis,drug screening, clinical diagnostics to chemical processing in water quality monitoring and others.
The technology increases the available colour gamut for images, producing drops as small as 1.3 picolitres, so a 5-ink printing system can produce photo-quality prints comparable to 6-colour inkjet printers.
Their latest commercial development centres around variable-sized droplet technology which enables ejection of three distinct ink drop volumes, viz., 3, 10 and 19 picolitres. In comparison, mid-1980s commercial ink jet printers were based on droplet volumes of ~1,000 pico litres.
