It is fine to promote your company's reagents. Just make sure they are relevant to CyTOF, and do so in moderation and style :-)

I am looking at buying some Holmium 165 and see it is sold as chloride and as nitrate. Which would be the best format to get?

Re: Holmium

Both forms are water soluble, so either is fine. Just make sure to get "trace metals basis" 99.9+% pure.

Also, dissolve it in something slightly acidic, as the Ln series is more stable in acidic solutions. L buffer usually works, as does MilliQ water with a bit of nitric acid added (100uL of 3% nitric in 10mL MilliQ...doesn't need to be much)
