Agar Gel diffusion rate

  1. Sep 23, 2010 #1

    I am doing a research project in which I need to diffuse PFA(Paraformaldehyde) into agar gel. I want to know how to calculate the diffusion rate. The agar gel is 1%, and 2 mm thickness. How long approximately does it take for PFA to diffuse from the top to the bottom?

    Is there any article that I can read about?

    Umm.... this is *your* research project, right?

    What do you propose to measure?

    I need to measure the diffusion rate of PFA in 1% agar gel.
