RE: Daily Digest

From:"Auld, John"


	The most common, as far as I'm aware, is to use 0.1% trypsin in a
0.1% calcium chloride solution  and adjust the pH to 7.8. It may be that the
authors of the article you read used a 1% in 1% solution, if you try this I
think you stand a good change of overdigesting the tissue.

	Good luck
