Picture a Day-Day 49

Like the toys in a toy shoppe or the sprinkles in a bakery after the lights are out the equipment in a lab gets up to some strange stuff.
It's a magical time when liquids start to solidify, gels dry out, and that experiment you were sure would be just fine sitting on the bench somehow catches on fire. You can almost smell the pixie dust and Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate in the air.

The lab equipment plans something a little special tonight. Though first they all need a quick run through the hot and steamy autoclave to rid them of any bugs: Once everything is set, the eppi tubes all got their caps on and the pipetteman got a fresh rack of tips everyone jump onto the cart. We're going to the major lab party in Animal Science!I fear the worse at that party as we have not seen our huge centrifuge since. RIP eppendorf centrifuge with the refrigeration unit, you shall be missed.

Very cool pics! Reminds me of those school science experiments where I was always afraid something would blow up!
