Gel Solution Lab Report

Decent Essays
This lab was performed in partners. To begin with the experiment, the gel caster was assembled. The two plates were properly cleaned and then introduced well align to avoid leakages to the plastic platform. Once there were correctly adjusted. A wash bottle was used to pour water to the edges and wait for about 5 minutes to verify there was no leakage. The TA came to the group in order to verify the correct assembly. Then, the water was through on the sink.
40 ml of 15% resolving gel solution was prepared. A 100 ml beaker was selected and labeled as resolving gel solution. To the beaker 9.68 ml of water was added plus 20 ml of 30% Acrylamide. Once all the solution were added to the beaker it was let aside in order to prepared the 4x resolving

20 ml of 5% stacking gel solution was prepared. A 100 ml beaker was selected and labeled as stacking gel solution. To the beaker 11.5 ml of water was added plus 3.3 ml of 30% Acrylamide. Once all the solution were added to the beaker it was let aside in order to prepared the 4x stacking gel buffer needed to be added to the beaker. To make the desired buffer, another 100 ml beaker was used to prepare a solution buffer of 50 ml. Following the prelab calculations once again and using the weighting balance, the amount of Tris and SDS needed was weighted. The Tris used were 3.206g and SDS 0.205g. The solids were added to the beaker and to this 50 ml of water. The beaker was stir on the stirring plate until the solution dissolved completely. The already calibrated pH meter was used to measure he initial pH of the buffer as 10.40. HCl was added drop by drop in order to lower the pH to the desired 6.8. A final pH of 6.62 was achieved. Once the buffer was ready, 5 ml of it were added with the graduated cylinder to the initial beaker with the stacking gel. The TA then added the rest to the solution, these being 20 microliters of TEMED and 300 microliters of 10% APS. These last two materials were added right before pouring the gel to the gel

    After that we pipetted 0.75 ml of buffer PE to the samples and spun it for another minute then disposed of the waste. The columns were added to the tubes and spun for a minute in the centrifuge to dry then planed in new clean tubes. Without touching the wafers with the pipet tip, 50µl of elution buffer EB was added to the columns then left for a minute and centrifuged for a minute. The liquid collected at the…

    Incubate the bottles for 5 minutes. Swirl the bottle around to make sure that trypsin removes all the cells from the bottle. Then, use a pipette to remove the substrate from the bottles and into centrifuge tubes. Then centrifuge the tubes for 1 minute at 1000xg. Make sure that the centrifuge tubes are properly balanced.…

    A stir bar was added into the flask containing isoborneol, and the flask was attached to a ring stand to rest on top of a magnetic stirrer device. In consistent drops, 0.63 mL of glacial acetic was added and the reaction had a pH of 2, which was measured with pH indicator paper. Then, 0.50 mL of 10% w/v sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) solution was added, and the reagents were reacted for three minutes. Shortly after, 5.13 mL of 10% w/v NaOCl was added incrementally with a Pasteur pipet for about ten minutes. A thermocouple was periodically placed on the outside of the flask to make sure that the mixture did not reach past 50 °C.…

    The column was then drained to allow the solvent level to reach the top of the silica gel. Afterwards, a solution of 0.3% Methanol in chloroform was carefully added to the top of the column to elute the column. Upon adding the fresh eluent, curcumin and other compounds were eluted at a different rate. The eluted compounds were collected using test tubes. The collection of eluted compounds was stopped when the first intense band had reached the bottom of the column.…

    HCl slowly with stirring until the mixture is acidic to congo red paper. Collect the resulting crystalline precipitate of hippuric acid or benzoyl glycine , which contaminated with a little benzoic acid upon a Buchner funnel, wash with cold water and dry. Place the solid in the 100 ml beaker with 10 ml of CCl4 ,cover the beaker with the watch glass and boil the mixture gently for 5 minutes. Allow the mixture to cool slightly and filter by gentle suction and wash it 3-4 times with CCl4. Recrystallize it from the boiling water.…

    After the initial temperature was recorded the MgO was quickly added and the cup was swirled while the temperature changes were recorded. After the data collection as over the reaction stopped the reaming MgO residue on the watch glass was recorded and all waste products were disposed of and all material were cleaned. The data form reaction four was saved on the lab quest so that reaction five could be carried out. The Styrofoam cups were restacked and placed in a 400 mL beaker to which 120 mL of 2M HCl was then added the calorimeter was then closed and the initial temperature was recorded by using the lab quest. 0.5 g of Mg was then gathered and weighed using the scale and watch glass, all weights were recorded in table 3.…

    Bast was immersed in 0.85% solution of Triton X-100 at 40 ⁰C for 10 min, followed by soaking in sodium hydroxide (NaOH) solution at varies concentrations (1, 2 4, 6 and 8%) at 100 ⁰C for 60 min. For enzymatic retting, the fiber was treated with chelating agent, enthylenediamine-tetraacetic acid, then immersed in 0.85% solution of Triton X-100 at 40 ⁰C for 10 min, followed by adding of pectinase at different concentrations (0.25, 0.5, 1.0 and 3%) at 50 ⁰C for an hour. They concluded all treatment resulted in reduction of lignin and addition of 3% pectinase into the treatment produced optimum decreased by almost one-half of lignin content compared to unretted fibers. Lee et al. (2004) concluded that chemical retting is more effective to remove hemicellulose, whilst enzymatic retting was more effective to remove lignin.…

    A glass stir rod was then used to crush any large chunks, then the stir plate was turned back on for five minutes. During the dissolving process, 250 mL potassium iodate (KIO3) was made from the concentration KIO3 solution made previously in Lab F. Also, a burette was rinsed and filled will 0.01085M sodium thiosulphate. Once the Vitamin C was completely dissolved, is was transferred into a 500mL volumetric flask using gravity filtration; then filled to the line and mixed. To ensure a quantitative transfer, only instruments were rinsed into the flask. Then, a rinsed, 25mL pipette was used to transfer the previously made KIO3 into a 125ml Erlenmeyer flask.…

    A volumetric pipette was then used to add 10 mL of acetic acid to 50 mL of deionized water and the beaker was placed below the burette. The pH probe was then rinsed and placed in the acetic acid buffer solution and an initial pH reading was taken. The titration was then started by adding NaOH in .5 mL increments until the pH changed dramatically. Once the buffering capacity was –assed six .5 mL portions of NaOH were added. The data collection was then stopped and all waste was disposed of properly and the pH probe was rinsed and placed in deionized…
