 +===== FAQ =====
 + My FRAP curve best bits a double exponential fit, but I get two tau values by using a double exponential fit, one small and one large. My question is which tau value do I use? Only the small tau value make sense in my experiments,​ am I allowed just simply to ignore the large tau value?
 +The double exponential fits to almost any FRAP curve (even for diffusion only recovery). This causes problem in interpretation of data: it could be that kinetics beihing is nothing to do with the double exponential. ​
 +If you know pretty well that the kinetics you are analyzing is indeed a double exponential reaction and doing the experiment correctly, you could interpret that there are reactions with fast and slow kinetics and could use those values to discuss differences. ​
 +If such condition is not met, forget about the model behind the recovery. Then all you could do is to compare the half-max time (1/2 tau). This is rather qualitative,​ but still is valid and scientific.
