Today I ran the bioanalyzer on the batch of 8 samples from Day 26 (cold, infected) from Nov 21st. Results don’t look super great, and the ladder didn’t show up.
Next steps: January 2019
We have ordered a new reagent (TRIzol LS Regent), and will tentatively have it next week (Tuesday/Wednesday). We’ll extract some RNA from some samples with that reagent and compare to yields and purity that we get from the Qiagen Kit.
