Re: Sorry to ask again but...
As Matt writes below, the Aztek folks do handle the Kami fluid. However you will be required to pay a hazardous shipping fee if you order it.
Also, if you use the 4990, one should seal the edges of the platen so the fluid will not leak into the traveling light area. Yes, it dries quickly, or evaporates, but still, one does not want that fluid entering the interior of the device.
You will obtain a good scan by placing it directly on the glass. One could also purchase some ultra- thin glass or even place a layer of clear mylar between the negative and the platen and then put a sheet of glass on that.
All the information you need, along with videos, is at the Aztek web site. This includes how/where to get the stuff and even the special mylar.
