Fellow wormbreeders-
Is anyone using compressed air instead of nitrogen for microinjection?
Please let me know-

Several customers use our microINJECTOR System with compressed
air instead of a nitrogen tank.  It works just as well, as long as:
1) Your compressed air source is at a significantly higher pressure
      than you ever plan to inject at (you will want it to be at least 80

2) The air is relatively clean (free of dirt, oil, and excessive moisture
      that could damage the regulator).  An appropriate filter and/or trap
      will take care of that.
