A real-time, automated, nucleic acid sequencing apparatus that offers high speed, definitive sequencing on many samples at the same time. The apparatus permits more than one clone to be sequenced at a time, thus vastly decreasing the time required to sequence longer fragments and reducing sequencing costs accordingly. ...
Apparatus for conducting measurements of displacement, deflection, tilting,nd/or rotation of structures such as floodwalls, retaining walls, dam piers, buildings, embankments and the like is disclosed. The apparatus of this invention has the capability of simultaneously making measurements in two planes, parallel and p...
A roofing shingle (20) comprises a web (22) having a shingle major dimension (24) and a shingle minor dimension (26). The web (22) in turn comprises a headlap portion (30) and plural tabs (32). The headlap portion (30) extends along a web first edge (34) which is parallel to the shingle major dimension. The plural tabs...
