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).
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
