|I need these|
So...I'm about to purify my RNA and find out we have no more RNEasy columns for RNA Purification and can't order anymore. Of course, this is the one supply
that I couldn't sequester and save for myself earlier on.
I need to purify my RNA for PCRs, and I already planned to do PCRs today, tomorrow, and this weekend so that I would have that new data for my committee. That's all I need. At this point...I'm baffled and I'm not sure what to do. I have to speak with my Advisor and ask him what my options are, because I need this data for my thesis, and I'm not going to get held back because we are out of supplies. I saw him on his way to go play ping pong, so I'll have to wait until he gets back.
The only thing standing between me and a defense are the available resources. They said that thesis students get priority on supplies over work study students & volunteers, but I don't know if everyone knows that because a lot of students are beginning to learn in the lab while our resources are low.
Now, I don't know what I can do in terms of RNA Purification just yet, but I will say this:
I'm willing to learn an entirely new protocol if it means I get purified RNA for my PCRs.
I need to defend. I need to finish. I'm determined!
