Re: blank and substrate control give OD reads

You centrifuge the reactions in the 96-well plate and then in that you measure absorbance? How can you do that if the bottom is blocked by your substrate? Can you describe your reactions and controls in more detail including some example absorbances so we can make better idea what you have in there...

Re: blank and substrate control give OD reads

Here's another approach. Set up a pair of tubes identically, containing everything but the xylanase. Check their OD. Add xylanase to one of the tubes and mix. Check the OD again. That way you control for other potential errors, such as a difference in buffer concentration or a variation in tube thi...

Re: blank and substrate control give OD reads

Is there anything in the buffer that absorbs light at the wavelength you are using for your OD readings? It might be worth running the buffer in a spectrophotometer and comparing against water at wavelengths near your OD measurement. Dear jonmoulton, thanks for your reply. >>>my buffer is ...
