    BigBella, how can you see colors? I thought doggies were color blind. Perhaps, in shades of grey.....

    The negative control dead pollen, does not look dead enough to me...

    It's all shades of gray; and I beheaded that emoticon . . .

    But, but, but it stayed yellow, ugh...
    Yes teacher, I will expose some to 80c for 24 hrs

    Oh and that first batch of MTT was still good, I had refrigerated it. That one paper said it would be good in fridge for a week or two as long as its color was unchanged. I used it for those last two trials...
    What was left got divided up and frozen as well.

    I was just joking. Yes, the pollen did not stain with MTT, and therefore the 30 seconds of nuking was probably sufficient.

    Where are all the defiant students?

    30 secs of nuking alone was not enough, I had to rehydrate then nuke.
    Nuking it for 40 secs while still dehydrated had no noticable effect.

    Tough pollen.
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

    Microwaves work by exciting water, fat and sugar molecules... so guessing it helped to have a higher moisture content
