Orbi has finished running Yuanjun’s samples! What’s next? Casey’s TMT samples are running since this morning.  We lost power for a moment, but no equipment went down except for the AC system. It’s getting warm in the lab, and we hope that OPP will reset our AC soon. If the temperature is kept under control, I will start running Valerie’s, Joana’s, and Mark’s samples tomorrow. Next in the queue is Nicole followed by Michael.

MALDI is taking a holiday break – no samples to run.

On Monday, July 7th at 9 AM I will be showing a student how to cut gel bands and clean them up for in-gel digestion. Please e-mail me if you are interested in joining our micro-workshop. We can easily accommodate 2-3 more learners!

Have a nice 4th of July weekend!

ETA: It is 28C in the lab, one more degree C and LC system will quit. It doesn’t understand hot. It patiently waits until it can reach the set temperature. Last Summer, it waited 2 weeks for its favorite temperature. Just sayin’.
