huge thanks for this post and related publication.
Neat for some of our collective works here (for example): https://diaspodon.fr/@KaouennNoz/105587751018818220
A project for which we need biochem helps and collabs.
That's a nice project! Of course, GCMS and LCMS need expensive laboratory equipment... Are you in touch with someone in this regard?
@christian_zerfass Nope. No contact yet. Any ideas?
And we're trying to find ways to do frugal analysis (I will ask in Frugal Science program from Prakash Lab)
I am not familiar with frugal analysis...
You are in Rennes, n'est-ce pas? Here is a link to a metabolomics publication incl. researchers from Rennes. The corresponding author's email is stated. Maybe they'd help as an outreach / citizen science support activity? They wrote about LCMS, which is equally feasible and currently our method of choice.
Yep, I am.
Well done (^_~), And thanks for this nice resources for the weekend
Let me know if I can be if any further help 👍 it's an interesting project you are setting up!
@christian_zerfass Random question but related with our works (microfluidics for soil and water analysis)
If i'm right, Poly(dimethylsiloxane) is used as an anti-lice shampoo.
So, If we want to make "frugal" Poly(dimethylsiloxane)-Based Microfluidic Devices can we use this shampoo as a basis for our preparation?
I would assume no. To cast a device, you need to somehow polymerize / crosslink the PDMS. So you would have to purify, then test how to process to get a structural integrity - not sure that would work with the kind of PDMS used in shampoo, but I guess it is an additive of defined polymerization.
But I'm no expert on microfluidics..
