hello to you all
i'm using a fluorescence prob to detect bacteria inside stone corals.
i'm checking crushed tissue sampels and cross sections (10 microns depth)of
i have a serious problem of auto fluorescence of both crushed and whole
on the same wavelength i'm using for my probs (490, 630 and 540 nm).
the auto fluorescence is produced by the algea and by the coral tissue
i'm looking for a technique to decrease the auto fluorescence using
prehybridization washing or some other method.
