Week 5- Day 4
Today , things did not go as planned. First we discovered that the separation beads we left in the cold room had dried out. We had left the beads in the cold room with the intention of getting it ready for the NCP that was currently running through the gel. So we decided to re-run the beads but in doing that, we broke the tube in which the beads were in. As we quickly tried to retrieve what we could of the beading solution, Professor Andresen told us that the gel did not run properly and we would have to repeat it. This means that we have to wait till tomorrow to proceed with the NCP procedure. Tomorrow will be a better day!
