PRELIMINARY CALCULATIONS INDICATE THE WET SLIDE WILL BE THREE TO FOUR TIMES MORE SENSITIVE THAN THE DRY SLIDE; SENSITIVITY WILL BE IN THE RANGE OF 10 NG/CM(2). AFTER THE COMPLETION OF PHASE I, IT WILL BE EVIDENT IF THE PROPOSED SLIDE FUNCTIONS PROPERLY. A AN IMPERMEABLE ENVELOPE, THEREBY REDUCING THE RISK OF CONTAMINATION.
