This experiment was designed to assess the impact of evaporation upon the absorbance reading at 430nm of an ONP solution in the Victor3 plate reader. 50μL of 0.75mg/mL ONP was aliquoted into each well of 2 rows in a 96 well plate (except column 12). To each well, between 0 and 100 μL of H2O was added to the sample and the absorbance at 600nm was measured. This setup was intended to mimic the situation in which there is a sample with a constant amount of absorbing material (i.e. ONP) in the well, and there is evaporation of water over time from the well thereby changing both the concentration of material and volume of liquid (path length) in the well. Thus, the variability in absorbance due to different amounts of H2O added should reflect the variability in absorbance due to evaporation in experiments. This graph also shows 2 replicates of each combination of 50 μL culture + X μL of H2O to provide an indication of the variability between identical samples.
