It appears that there is some kind of thermal motion in my flow cells that I have to account for, and haven't so far. Friday, the possibility of drifting from a temperature gradient as opposed to a magnetic force came up. To test this, I have two emulsions, one with ferritin and one without.
From the fact that there is so much drift in both of them to the left, it is clear that there is something going on that I need to get a handle on. As a note though, there is a point about half-way through the the film of the emulsion without ferritin where the background shifts. This is relatively quick in my sped up version, (where one second is a minute of footage, so it is not that quick in the real world). The large drops I believe are attaching themselves to the cover slip, and are just interfering with the optics.
