    • 100pM: from 150pM dilution
    • 80pM: from 150pM dilution
    • 60pM: from 150pM dilution
    • 50pM: from 150pM dilution
    • 40pM: from 150pM dilution
    • 30pM: from 150pM dilution
    • 20pM: from 150pM dilution

    • 200pM/160pM: from 2nM/1.6nM dilutions
    • 100pM/80pM: from 2nM/1.6nM dilutions
    • 75pM/60pM: from 2nM/1.6nM dilutions
    • 50pM/40pM: from 2nM/1.6nM dilutions
    • 25pM/12.5pM: from 2nM/1.6nM dilutions

FCS Data: Calibration Curves



  • Use green fluorescent beads to align laser
  • Calibration curves did not turn out as expected (linear trend)
  • DNA, not MB, should be in excess for DNA-MB samples to ensure all MB is bound
  • Focus on three concentrations, run each sample several times, average curves
    • Oligo D: 150, 125, 100pM run three times at 500s per sample
    • DNA/MB: 100pM DNA/80pM MB, 75/60, 50/40pM run three times at 500s per sample (increase to 700s per sample if spectra are noisey)
