What to do with the configuration test cell after configuring the MinION with it?
I received a MinION with a configuration test cell in it. After running a configuration in the MinKNOW software while the CTC was in the MinION, I wonder what to do with the CTC? Am I going to need it later or can I throw it away? If I should keep it, in what conditions should I keep it (temperature, light, etc.)?
Also, do you know why we need to do a configuration of the MinION the first time?
I posted this question on Biology Stackexchange as well but maybe the community here will be more receptive?
