Ken at work on Bluegrass
Bluegrass is used exclusively for passive tension measurements.
Dedicated equipment includes:
1) Aurora 403B force transducer
2) Cambridge motor
3) Siskiyou manipulators (motorized z-axis)
4) Microstar DAP5216 card
5) Olympus inverted microscope
6) 8 square brick pavers (Home Depot)
The pavers are used to support the manipulators and Ken is extraordinarily proud of them. He thinks that they are more stable than alternative metal posts.
The Campbell Lab would like to thank the checkout guy at Home Depot for donating the pavers "to help heart research" when he couldn't work out how sell less than a pallet load of them.
