In paragraph format, state what you are going to do today so a reader unfamiliar with your project could understand what is going on.


  • ✓ Measure cell density of K562 culture via flow cytometry
  • ✓ If cell density is between 500,000 and 1,000,000 cells/mL, transfer to fresh antibiotic-free medium and transfect with lipofectamine, KAH126/MV2 plasmid


flow cytometry

transfection with lipofectamine


Well 1: KAH126/MV2, ben's plasmid prep (original concentration 377 ng/μL)
Well 2: KAH126/MV2, Mara's plasmid prep (original concentration 279 ng/μL)
Well 3: negative control, no plasmid


Culture density is 668,000 cells/mL as measured via flow cytometry.

Cells have been transfected and placed in the incubator. Tomorrow: fluorescence microscopy to check transfection efficiency.
