Citrate Synthase test

Citrate-Synthase (CS) Test Run #1 Today Matt George and I attempted to test out our CS protocol using the Varioscan spectrophotometer. The original settings on the machine was 1000 meaurements without any breaks, but at 25 seconds a measurement, that would mean the Variscan would have been running for 12.5 hours so I had to kill the scripts which deleted the data. I re-ran the machine 57 minutes later (20 minutes past the ideal time) with the new settings (30 measurements with 2 second breaks=12.5 minutes of samples) and captured the very end of the absorbance curve with the absorbance spectrum centered at 412um. Results from the first test run can be found here
