ELISA: How I Wonder What You Are
My phone’s email notification went off, and I rolled over in bed to look at the clock. Saturday, 5 am. Wonderful. Who would email me at that hour? It had to be my undergraduate research PI. I unlocked my phone. Yep. Doesn’t he ever sleep?
Dear Casey: We are launching a new collaborative project in which we will be measuring human albumin levels in serum of control patients and comparing those with patients suspected to have decreased albumin levels. We will be measuring albumin levels using ELISA. I need an assay plan drawn up and submitted to me by 5:00 today.
Wow, he had me as the lead on this project! Now all I needed to do was get into the lab and figure out who Elisa was and how she was going to help me on this project!
