Abstract: We show that in the presence of spinodal instabilities which develop at afirst order phase transition, the fluctuations of conserved charges can be asstrong as those at the critical end point CEP. In particular, the net baryonnumber susceptibility diverges as the system crosses the isothermal spinodallines. This indicates that charge density fluctuations can be used not only toprobe the CEP but also the non-equilibrium first order chiral phase transitionin heavy ion collisions.
