Finally, after a long, long delay, I have escaped grave peril to create for you Episode 4 of Stir-Fried Stochasticity.  Today’s topic is my excuse for the year-long delay between Episode 3 and Episode 4, and (more importantly) the microbiological practice of “Heat-Fixing” and its purpose, and the ability (or inability) of “heat-fixing” to render microscope slides of Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacteria sterile and safe to handle.
