Not really, Walt, if the question is serious. Perhaps someone in the
group knows how to make a very sensitive transducer out of a slide.

We've been working with UCSF on a very large, isolated and sensitive
transducer that would pick up the signature of cell metabolism and
certain types of viruses attaching and detaching themselves from cell
media (work already published by some folks in Great Britain a couple
of years back, altho I forget the reference at the moment). Protozoa
should be relatively simple...perhaps even with existing
hydrophones...but in a space much larger than that of a slide (hear
Track 6 on the CD that comes with "Wild Soundscapes" as a reference).
