keep them organised, so :
I got a Ferrraro Roche container from a friend ( clear plastic ,
rectangular) and the cardboard divider from a - 80 freezer box. Cut
the divider to fit and organised the vials in their serial dilutions. Fits
beautifully in the door of the fridge. A second similar container
holds my small bottles of streptavidin and my Biotinylated
secondary, etc. My friend thinks I should get another box of those
chocolates and charge it to my boss. I haven't had the nerve.
My incubation chambers for IHC are rubbermaid containers.
For TEM IHC I got two ceramic escargo dishes, each has 6 wells,
for $2 in a grocery store sale bin. I was tickled as the ones from an
EM catalogue are about $15 each.
But my favourite is the wooden stir stick with a eyelash attached to
the end by a dab of nail polish that I use with my $3000 diamond
knife to do TEM work. The incongruity always makes me chuckle.
I like this thread. It's more than a good chuckle. It's an
exchange of neat ideas.
