You guys were AWESOME... however, since I'm not too familiar with this site yet, I'd like to thank everyone at once, having not figured out how to respond individually.
The pharmacist was indeed the best source of information, though she was busy and a bit brisk... she told me that the reason the lipids are separated is due to the fact that if a lipid emusion is present, it will obsure any presence of precipitation. Another interesting fact: it's not the same precipitation as outside!!! It refers (as I'm sure you ALL already know) to crystals being formed in the fluids. Wow. The more I learn, the more I realize I don't know ANYTHING!!
Thanks again for all your help- and whoever said that about making this a 2 page paper- NO JOKE!! A one sentence answer does not 2 pages make.
Oh well- I'll do my best... lots of fluff.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! You guys are incredible, and I'll be back soon, I'm sure. XOXOX
