Araba Bioscan 5-12 February 2021

Data for the period 5-12 February 2021

See the Araba Bioscan Project page for background information on the project and methods.


This was the second of a two-week test of use of Australian denatured ethanol as the collecting medium. I will return to isopropyl again for the next few weeks, awaiting feedback from Guelph on the first isopropyl samples submitted.

Many thanks to Charles Godfray for the first non-spam comment submitted to this blog.
