Analyzing My Liquid Sample
I’m presently in the Bioprocess lab running and testing some standards + my own samples. The Bioprocess lab is just opposite my Reaction Engineering Lab. The equipment ‘m using is called Gas Chromatography – Flame Ionization Detector (GC-FID). Don’t worry, you don’t need to memorize the name of that equipment. This is the 3rd day I have been staying put in this lab, analyzing and understanding the beahviour and identity of my samples. It’s very tricky and mysterious. But, as a Ph.D student, it is my task to solve this huge puzzle. Sometimes I play around and think hard about formulating a new reaction mechanism, and some other time I’m doing other parts of my study. Fuh…
Some of my samples and standards.
That is a microsyringe. To inject very small volume, just use this syringe. It can go down to 1 microliter!!!
Sometimes I wonder, when will my Ph.D be completed!!! I need to get it done once and for all…Otherwise I’ll be insane!!!
