Notes from Meeting

  • Since we're seeing some noise from just PBS on the FCS: make new PBS and run, parse out 10mL samples to avoid contaimination
  • Sonicate or centrifuge green fluorescent beads before running to prevent aggregation while measurements are being taken
  • Go up to 500pM for Oligo D samples (and lower concentrations)
  • Use a high, constant concentration of DNA with lower, decreasing concentration of MB
  • Check for consistent diffusion times between samples run on different days
    • Different diffusion times indicate background is something other than unbound DNA
  • Look up AuNP/DNA/MB fluorescent data and run samples/make and run new samples
  • Look in literature for ways to calculate silica shell thickness without TEM results
