[Celegans] quick platinum wire question

Thanks everyone who has ordered Pt wire from us for worm picks over the 
past few months.

Before carrying it, I sent around a survey to see what exact type people 
liked.  Based on that, we have been carrying 90% platinum 10% iridium 
(because it is stiffer and more durable than 99.95% platinum, and some 
people were using 80:20 and some 99.95%).

So, far, I have little feedback (other than that so many labs have 
ordered it!).  One lab said they didn't like the 90:10 as well as the 
99.95% they were used to because it is harder to to form the "spatula" 
and breaks sooner after repeated bending.

We have to order another batch of wire, so please let me know if you are 
happy with what we are sending out, or if we should switch to 99.95%.  
Which kind does not affect the price (except if we have to order small 
quantities of multiple kinds).

Best regards,
