Today I prepared a new calibration series, and some more DNA samples to run. We ran these samples under the supervision of a PerkinElmer tech, and took away some important lessons. We learned that altering the current through the plasma coil can give us higher counts for elements that require ionization. We also learned that slowing the flow of sample through the nebulizer will increase this effect. I prepared a new calibration series to run new PEG samples tomorrow.
