A Lab Created Gem

Hurray it's now our two month anniversary and aside from some really evil weather so far so good (Any bets on if I'll remember anymore here on out? Cause I'd lean towards no.)

Yesterday I had some time to kill in lab watching my stuff run out so I thought it'd be fun to do a little ring shoot where I work. So without further ado, here are the good pictures I got.

This would be a 1.5 mL tube, the cornerstone of any molecular lab. They also make a rather loud crunching noise when you step on them. My ring mixed in with a bunch of tips, you can also see a pipetteman in the background.
I got a bit crafty with the pipetteman, putting the amount for 18 (or the 18th).

A Box of Kim wipes are traditionally used for cleaning off microscope slides but in reality they are like the Kleenex of the lab world. They are used for everything and you only really notice how important they are when they're gone.
On top of an electrophoresis gel rig. I promise I'll explain it better later today (the other reason I had a camera in the lab).
In the middle of a centrifuge. Too bad I forgot the balance.
On top of a typical pyrex bottle, using some autoclave tape to keep it up.
I love the way this last one turned out, with it in a bit of ethanol in a beaker.

How did I not know you were a fellow science geek? I was a chem major in college, I know well the crunching sound made by crushed 1.5mL tubes :-) Love the photos!
