I don't know if this has any value in the other type cells that we are building but it was an interesting little experiment. I found out that ions can travel quite nicely through a gelatine based substance.

I am slowly working my way through years of these posts, and hopefully I will find an update on this in the next couple thousand posts... I follow you on YouTube and commented on this video (tgraca50), so send a note if you get a chance. Love your work!
