We still cannot produce consistent spectra for concentrations about 500nM.  This may be due to a limit of bonding: only a certain about of ThT molecules can bind to a give number of DNA molecules and that number has been reached, making higher concentrations irrelevant.

Notes

We still cannot produce consistent spectra for concentrations above 500nM. This may be due to a limit of bonding between the DNA and ThT: only a certain about of ThT molecules can bind to a given number of DNA molecules and that number has been reached, making higher concentrations irrelevant, which would explain the inconsistency.
