Quanta clogging can be acute or chronic. Sudden and severe clogs are obvious and the source easy to identify, whereas culprits for the slow build-up of obstructions are much harder pinpoint. Therefore, everyone should participate in the effort to prevent Quanta clogs, regardless of the cell type used. The Basic Measures listed below are simple steps that everyone should do. Certain cell types (e.g., HEKs) are known to be sticky and frequently experience severe clogs. Users who run such samples should take extra steps (see suggestions below) to prevent clogs. As people try out these different tips, please report back (either here on the Wiki or to Yvonne/Kathy on what seems to work and what doesn't).
