RE: [Histonet] Agitation of cassettes

From:"Molinari, Betsy"

Hi Fran,
Happy Friday to you! We do put our cassettes on a shaker. I work in a
research lab and have the luxury of time (well, most of the time I do)
to do so. I usually just keep the cassettes on overnight. I always put
my decals on a rotator or shaker it cuts my decal time by quite a bit. I
do not have a publication, but I am someone on this site will!

Thanks ahead of time,
