  1. Can you use a different solvent other than DMSO, so the acid wouldn’t be dissolved?

    1. What is flufanemic acid? You mentioned that it is an alternative to antibiotics, but what is it and where is it found?

      1. Flufenamic acid is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is used to reduce pain, inflammation, and fever. It works by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins, which are chemicals that cause pain, inflammation, and fever. Flufenamic acid is a synthetic compound and is not naturally found in any plant or animal sources. It is only available as a medication and is not used for any other purposes.

      2. The problem was that the flufenamic acid wouldn’t dissolve in the DMSO even though studies showed that it would dissolve in 50% DMSO. We tried 100% DMSO, but that caused the negative control to be inaccurate, so we decided the 50% DMSO was the best option.

  2. You said that Flufenamic acid wouldn’t fully dissolve in DMSO which may have led to inaccurate concentrations. What would you do in the future, to rectify this?

    1. In the future, I would crush the flufenamic acid into a powder so that it would better dissolve in the 50% DMSO. The 100% DMSO dissolved the flufenamic acid better; however, it led to inaccurate results in the negative control. Overall, I would do the same process, but crush the crystal form to make a power (make it easier to dissolve).

  3. Where is Flufenamic acid found naturally? You discussed alternatives to antibiotics, but what is flufenamic acid and where does it come from?

  4. Where is flufanemic acid found naturally? You mentioned it is important to have alternatives to antibiotics, but what is flufanemic acid exactly and where is it found?
