Objectives

  1. Finish rinsing and filtering prepared microspheres with hexanes.
  2. Continue microsphere preparation.
  3. Add dye to prepared microspheres in preparation for diffusion testing on microspheres with dye additive.


Microsphere Dye Addition

  • The general protocol for dye addition to PVA hydrogel/microspheres described on 2013/02/15 was followed.
  • An internal concentration of 1μM was wanted for the prepared microspheres and hydrogels
  • Dye was added to all the microspheres prepared on 2013/02/22


Dilution calculations:
1μM Rhodamine 6G Dye Concentration (90:10)

  M1V1 = M2V2
  1μM (RG6)x 10mL = (92μM)V2    V2 = 109μL

1μM Rhodamine 6G Dye Concentration (50:50)

  M1V1 = M2V2
  1μM (RG6)x 10mL = (165μM)V2    V2 = 61μL
