*Began with 12 samples (3x each of negative control, R0010, E0241, E7104). Fortunately our negative controls showed no growth overnight.

'''Notes on using the nanodrop'''
 
*Nanodrop measures concentration of DNA in small samples (1 µL). It is apparently not very accurate.
 
*Clean nanodrop thoroughly with kimwipes and ethanol, before and after each use
 
*On desktop, "ND-1000"->"Nucleic Acid"
 
*Before each set of samples:
 
**Calibrate nanodrop with drop of distilled water
 
**Calibrate nanodrop with drop of background (solute), e.g. distilled water or elution buffer
 
*Add sample to nanodrop, enter name of sample, "Measure"
 
**Note: mix sample before placing on nanodrop
