Default Found an eyelash in my sealed MiSeq Reagent cartridge

Is this like winning the lottery? Should I make a wish?

Do you mean within one of the reagent wells or just w/in the cardboard packaging? If there's an eyelash getting into the reagents then Illumina needs to take a serious look at their quality control.
