* Michael Nagle prepared a new set of Au/BSA solutions. However, calculations made are not available in his notebook.  * Michael Nagle prepared a new set of Au/BSA solutions. However, calculations made are not available in his notebook.  
* Lysozyme (14,307 Da) appeared as a white granular solid provided by Sigma. Knowing that 1 Da = 1 g/ mol, the following calculations were made to obtain a stock solution of 15.24 μM.  * Lysozyme (14,307 Da) appeared as a white granular solid provided by Sigma.

* The amount to be measured is too small to be certain that the entire solid would be dissolved in water. As a result, a multiple of the calculated amount was chosen to be dissolved in water; the amount chosen was 0.0109 g. Once dissolved, this will be diluted to 15 μM.  * The amount to be measured is too small to be certain that the entire solid would be dissolved in water.
