We were able to negotiate significant additional discounts with our vendors, so we are now adding an additional experiment to further validate […]
Our flow cytometer arrived today from San Diego. It came off the truck packed on multiple pallets, so we get to spend today setting it up. The flow cytometer is one of the cooler instruments in our lab- it will allow us to distinguish individual cells. Once it’s set up, we will load samples into […]
