@  Curtis : (16 September - 08:41 PM) If your head is starting to resemble a crystal ball, prostate cancer may be in your future a study shows

@  Tabaluga : (23 August - 03:02 AM) Thanks mdfenko, hobglobin and casandra !!! :)
@  casandra : (22 August - 02:20 PM) Hey Tabs...hope you had the greatest birthday ever!!!
@  hobglobin : (22 August - 09:02 AM) happy birthday tabs,enjoy the day
@  mdfenko : (22 August - 03:56 AM) happy birthday fred_33, wherever you are.
@  mdfenko : (22 August - 03:55 AM) happy birthday tabaluga
@  hobglobin : (18 August - 08:15 AM) We try to have sets for purposes (PCR, gels, DNA extraction, general) and it works quite well. Some also have their own pipets if the project money allows them to buy... :D
@  Tabaluga : (17 August - 06:07 AM) We had own pipettes (at least in theory) and a special set was just available for cell culture. The cell cultre ones were somewhat an unknown factor because nobody knew when they were last calibrated....
@  pito : (17 August - 04:06 AM) ah we have our own pipettes (for bench work) and some shared pipettes for some of the dirtier/specific work. These shared pipettes are also the worsed, but often not such a big problem since accuracy is less an issue for them
@  Trof : (17 August - 03:07 AM) There are no "my pipettes" in our lab. There are pipettes for different uses. I found it a better system then to use one pipette for any dirty/clean work I need. But that system requires everyone to take care.
Cause if they won't, they would make ME very angry! (and they don't want to do that ;)
@  pito : (16 August - 11:01 AM) I would not allow people to really use my pipettes to be honest. Just because of the reasons you just explained...
@  Tabaluga : (16 August - 10:57 AM) *calibration
@  Tabaluga : (16 August - 10:56 AM) I bet they'd think me crazy and well, they'd be kind of right :D
But in general I do hate when people take/exchange pipets because with your own you can at least be sure that you didn't mistreat them since the last calibarion...
@  hobglobin : (16 August - 08:19 AM) I wonder what your labmates would think and do if you urge them to give back "Paul" or "Emily" :lol:
@  Tabaluga : (16 August - 06:52 AM) Well you know it's difficult tostablidh a personal relationship with these pipets because they are often snatched by other lab members and exchanged :D
@  hobglobin : (15 August - 01:07 PM) Well as long as you don't talk and cuddle with them... ;)
