These are made by adding two more light sensors, and it was tested to pick up pesticide at 0.02 micrograms per liter. Though not quite as good in quality as the machines that are 30,000-60,000, they are much more affordable for small laboratories."

When I looked in my Gmail inbox tonight, I noticed that it was still beta, and then I remembered that it has been in the beta form ever since I had my account there. But why is it still in the beta form? Is it for legal reasons (so they won't be held liable for hacking)? There are a bunch of other Google programs that are also in beta form. Why?
