Abstract

See full text

A device for holding a horizontal array of discrete aliquots of treating liquid having, (a) a horizontally-extending rigid base, (b) a horizontally-extending elastomeric member (or coating) on the horizontally-extending rigid base with a substantially planar horizontally-extending upper surface, and (c) a plurality of recesses formed in the elastomeric member, each recess opening to the horizontally-extending upper surface, the elastomeric member (or coating) having at its upper surface a material sufficiently incompatible with the treating liquid for a discrete aliquot of treating liquid in a recess to form a convex shape extending above the plane of the adjacent upper surface of the elastomeric member (or coating).
