We use
amp - orange
kan - red
cm - green (like chlorophyl)
tet - yellow (that's the color)

I definitely think we need a standard.

We use red for kan and green for cm too!!
But black for amp..........


No, no, you're quite wrong! Black is for LB - 1 stripe for 10 g NaCL/L, 2 stripes for 20 g NaCL/L. Pink is for gentamycin though - that's my favorite and the one I got to pick for our lab.
