Default Flow cell design?

Can anyone point me to where I can find public information on the design of the integrated flow cell that Ion Torrent uses in their chips? I don't need great details - basic channel layout and rough dimensions, etc, would be sufficient. From the videos and pics out there it just looks like a molded shell with one inlet and one outlet port and no particular structure in between. Is that all?

this thread links to some interesting documents. You can also read their nature paper which goes in to specific details.

Heck no, just curious. I doubt that once set in place by Van der Waals forces there is any type of external agitation that could effectively dislodge a significant number of beads. But if someone comes up with a method it would put a serious dent into Life's consumables revenue stream.

Thank you for good name for this device.
The most difficult will be to develop cameraboad for chip.

Has anyone run the Paired-End method yet? I heard there is prep off the instrument to do the enzymatic steps for the second read. If you looked at the beads/reads present in read 1 and then present in read 2 it could give an indication on how well the beads stay in the wells.

I had you in mind when I asked that question.

This is for another thread, but I would love to hear more about what you're doing, given all the spy documents you post.
