So last Wednesday I was able to finish my calculations and actually plate my 5 samples on the same day so I could get on track. However, there was an issue with the 1x top agar and all of the plates ended up being contaminated. Now obviously that is a problem, so today was kind of a make-up session for that mistake. I made a fresh batch of 1x TA and used new phage buffer just to make sure that there would not be any more issues with this procedure. When I get back to the lab on Wednesday, hopefully I can get started on my 10 plate procedure.
