Craig Albertson, starting April 4
3% methylcellulose - 1 or 2 of those ~250ml containers should be more than enough.
80% glycerol (mixed in 1% PBS)
2 boxes of wooden pencils (~50 total) - the brand doesn't matter, they just need to have an eraser.
Small sewing needles - Smallest size is like 80 (12) I think. If in doubt maybe get an assortment? they will be inserted into the pencil erasers - the small needles are generally finer than most of the probes we have in teaching labs.
Insect needles - These will also be inserted into erasers for more fine manipulation/dissection of fishes. The goal will be for each group to have one "fine" and one "course" probe.
