This morning I finished the RCR training modules, and we also had a training session on chemical safety. During the afternoon, I prepared and tested my two new magnesium series. Each series has 9 samples, ranging from 0mM Mg to 4.11 mM Mg. One series was diluted using the 1000uL pipette, and the other was diluted using the 5000uL pipette. Also, several of the data points should match up with the calibration standards that we use. This should help me identify if the uncertainty is coming from the solution preparation or from the machine's calibration. Tomorrow I will be able to analyze this data and possibly design a new test if necessary.
