Does the labelling efficiency change with temperature? Is the instrument temperature controlled?

The instrument is not temperature controlled.  We do however have a number of temperature sensors located within the instrument, and values from these are used to calculate viscosities, which in turn are used in the Stokes-Einstein equation to determine the diffusion coefficient. OPA chemistry is slightly temperature dependent, but the labelling efficiency will not change drastically within normal room temperature range.
