Re: Totipotent Stem Cell From Molecular Components

... is the average of the gene expression in # of strands of mRNA * 100. I am getting the protein this way. I take the results of PCR and put it in a test tube with RNA polymerases, Ribosomes, and other proteins that help with protein synthesis. I then look at the structure of the protein as is and ...

Re: Lonza MycoAlert test

This assay is quite robust but like all products has a few pitfalls. Questions: 1.) are you using a multifunction plate reader with a luminescence setting or a dedicated cuvette luminometer? 2.) Are you using MycoAlert or MycoAlert Plus? Some multifunction plate readers have hopelessly weak luminesc...
