Some basic lab etiquette

Here's a list of some basic rules for the lab. Many are drawn from "At the Bench" as well as my own personal experience. Feel free to add your own!

  • Do not use other people's reagents and buffers without permission.
  • Always replace common reagents if you finish them. If you finish off something, be sure to replace it right away.
  • Do not use other people's pipettes and consumables without permission.
  • No eating or drinking in the lab. Can lead to a big fine.
  • Do not touch door handles or computers with gloves on. Computers designated to be glove compatible are excepted.
  • Please clean the microscope up after use, especially the oil. Leaving oil on the objective can degrade its performance.
  • If something goes wrong, let someone know. Mistakes happen, just be sure to let people know so that we can deal with it.
  • Respond to alarms. If there is an alarm (say, -80C malfunction), see if you can resolve the issue. If not, tell someone else about the alarm.
