Technical Note
Make sure each ChipMaker Micro Spotting Pin is clean and dry before storage in a ChipMaker Pin Rack.  Pins should be free of dust, hand oils and other contaminants.  Gloves should be worn at all times when handling pins and the pin rack.  Nitrile gloves (rather than latex) are recommended to prevent transfer of latex proteins onto the pins and pin rack.  Please note that ChipMaker Pin Racks are designed for "soft storage" purposes and are not intended for use as durable shipping containers.  The use of this product for shipping may result in permanent damage to pins.
