After completing experiments to test the effect of gold nanoparticles on calcium phosphate mineralization in solution with a microplate reader, Alex has moved on to microfluidics as a new analytical tool. Microfluidics provides more quantitative data than the plate reader and Alex plans to test the same concentration of nanoparticles that he used in the plate reader. The flow cell was recently modified (repaired) with a pipette tip as an outlet which is different from standard flow cells used in Gerdon Lab. Will this ingenuity work?
