I haven't seen the other thread you're referring to, but it sounds
like a similar issue...I will be carrying out downstream enzyme
assays in a subset of the samples, and that's why I'll need to remove
the PFA.  Your suggestions (dialysis or microfiltration) are both
good suggestions.  I think I'll try both to see which is gentler on
the structures.  Thanks much!
