comment How long does antibiotic-dosed LB maintain good selection?
"That's the temperature that Amp is regularly stored at" - and in fact, Amp does lose activity (a few % per month?) as a consequence.

comment Does trypsin strip flask coating?
@WYSIWYG That's an interesting point. However, what about the coat I mention? Corning fibronectin is isolated from human plasma, Corning collagen I is from cow plasma, and NEB does not clearly explain where they get their albumin (they say "fraction V") but I think it's also purified from an animal product. I thought all of these would come out as L-isomers.

comment Why do we need red blood cells?
#1 doesn't make sense. Whether in cells or not in cells, O2 binding to Hg depends on O2 concentration in solution. #2 doesn't make sense, but you are close to the interesting idea "having objects with diameter close to the blood vessel has unique and desirable hydrodynamic properties", but I would suspect it's more that capillaries evolved to track particle size, not the other way around. A useful insight would be to look at closely related animals with and without RBCs. Also, consider nucleated bird RBCs.
