#' Extract just one series, ie channel, of list of arrays
#'
#' This function was designed for handeling measurements stored as list of multiple arrays, like eg compound-screens using microtiter-plates where multiple parameters ('channels') 
#' were recorded for each well (element).
#' The elements (eg compounds screened) are typcally stored in the 1st dimension of the arrays, the replicated in the secon dimension and different measure types/parameters in the 3rd chanel. 
#' In order to keep the structure of of individual microtiter-plates, typically each plate forms a separate array (of same dimensions) in a list.  
#' The this function allows extracting a single channel of the list of arrays (3rd dim of each array) and return row-appended matrix. 
#' @param arrLst (list) list of arrays (typically 1st and 2nd dim for specific genes/objects, 3rd for different measures associated with)
#' @param cha (integer) channel number
#' @param na.rm (logical) default =TRUE to remove NAs
#' @param rowSep (character) separator for rows
#' @return list with just single channel extracted
#' @seealso \code{\link[wrMisc]{organizeAsListOfRepl}}
