Properly citing the instruments used in your work ensures clarity and transparency.
When referencing a specific instrument ensure the name is capitalized and followed by the manufacturer in brackets – for example;
- Protein size data was collecting using a Fluidity One instrument (Fluidic Analytics Ltd, Cambridge, UK)
- Protein interactions were assessed with a Fluidity One-W instrument (Fluidic Analytics Ltd, Cambridge, UK)
When referencing the overall technique please state; microfluidic diffusional sizing (MDS). This ensures that readers can quickly identify the specific technique used.
