GENERAL OBSERVATIONS

1. Dry touch off transfers with DNA in DMSO are not very reproducible with either coated or uncoated pd for both coated FP3S500 Slot Pins.  This may be due to small percentage of liquid transferred.

2. Increasing the concentration of DNA did not significantly affect the volume of Tris buffer (aqueous) transferred by either coated and uncoated FP3S500 Slot Pins.

3.Increasing the concentration of BSA significantly decreases the volume of Tris buffer transferred by both coated and uncoated FP3S500 Slot Pins.

4. Hydrophobic coated FP3S500 Slot Pins transferred slightly less DMSO - DNA and less Tris DNA and less Tris BSA than the uncoated FP3S500 Slot Pins.

5. Both coated and uncoated FP3S500 pins transfer significantly more aqueous solution than DMSO.

6. Coated FP3S500 pins had higher CV's than did uncoated pins.
