Covers

Coverslip

(Science: microscopy) thin glass, plastic, sapphire, SiO, NaCl, etc. Shaped into circles, squares, or rectangles for covering the specimen. Glass coverslips, grade no. 1 1/2, contain a high proportion of covers from 0.17 to 0.18 mm in thickness, close to the lens designer's specifications for employment of achromatic and apochromatic objectives of high numerical aperture. The thickness and refractive index of the glass coverslip are important because certain of their values have been assumed by the designer and manufacturer. These values have been specified by ASTM: thickness, commercial number 1 1/2: 0.16 to 0.19 mm, refractive index measured at the sodium D lines (589.3 nm), 1.523(0.005).

Re: qPCR vs Northern Blot

... qPCR). @jonmoulton - you're rigth first - in Northern blot I had silencing, in qPCR i didn't. As far as your question is concerned - my NB probe covers whole length of mRNA - all exons (it's a short one ~2 kbp total). In case of my PCR primers - FORWARD primer binds in one exon in the middle ...

How to maintain sterility while preparing petri dishes

... in both of them. I heat up the agar by boiling it and I held the plates in boiling water just before pouring the agar into them. I try to open the covers a minimal amount while pouring the agar. I put a rubber band around each once I'm done pouring. I'm not sure what else I can do to get a sterile ...

Re: Sound and how the brain reacts to it

I'm really glad I found this post...I have experienced the same thing my whole life. The sounds of folding paper, library books with plastic covers opening and closing, the scratching of a pencil across paper, they all put me in a trance-like state that you all have been describing. When I hear ...

Codons are triplets, but what's a Singlet, Doublet, etc?

... use the word in the program for any number of letters per codon, but thought I had better ask here in case there is a word that more specifically covers singlets, doublets, triplets, quartets, etc.. Any ideas?
