    So how exactly do you use a needle to insert bubbles into an A-12? I have both an A-12 and lots of needles.*

    I was selected at random for a UK-wide Imperial College/NHS CV19 antibody survey.  The test is too inaccurate for personal testing, but if all the false positives and negatives cancel out, it should provide a useful national figure.  The kit included a neat little finger pricker and a small polythene pipette for those fussy about applying their fingertip to the lateral flow test directly.  Not being fussy, I decided to keep the pipette and dab away with my finger.  It looks as if the pipette will be perfect for placing a replacement bubbles in artificial horizon cells such as the A12.  Moreover, it’ll save the embarrassment of explaining away a box of syringes and needles in my workshop.  DaveP
