Current Pro-CR Results
Part Two: 250 femtomolar concentration resolved by addition of anti-inhibitor


 
The figure above shows the real experimental results for resolution of the initiator molecule.

Concentration from left to right: 10 pM, 1 pM, 250 fM, and spontaneous (0 M).

The dramatic decrease in timescale as compared with Part I results is due to the addition of an anti-inhibitor molecule that revs up the kinetics of Pro-CR. 

With this addition, the baseline for the spontaneous Pro-CR reaction moves from 72 hours to 24 hours, meaning that concentration of the initiator is resolved in less than a day.
