HI all,

This is not exactly a rave/rant but my lab mates do not have a very good sterile technique. It often results in contamination of the samples they are working with.

The problem is I am new to the lab and their work is independent of the work I do. So, telling them that their sterile technique is not very good is none of my business (I am not their boss either), but it hurts to see someone answer the phone with gloves on and go back under the hood to finish off the work. Basically, I am looking for a good way to tell them/ make them realise their mistake. Something like a funny poster or any other ideas you may have.

Thanks for your help ....

Maybe u can post it on the phone "Pls don't contaminate me with ur bacteria and chemicals!" or you can share an incident with them that somehow has your message, but saying in the way the other has said, like this may be " a friend of mine was always using his gloves in the common items and this happened bla bla". It is really difficult to say when u r new to the lab!! I have faced similar situations as well
