      If you reread the Schachman papers on this method you will find it was
applied to APCase and the effect of small substrate concentrations, [c]'s
that would not change density or viscosity!  Matching density and viscosity
is a requirement of this method!!  Thus, it is limited to high affinity effector
It also requires extremely precise filling to perfectly match the menisci!
