Label Bottle Tops

Label Bottle Tops

At the start of a wetlab research experience, there is often more information to learn than is possible to remember. Even those who take great notes inevitably lose some details. One of the most common mistakes a new researcher makes is storing a chemical or reagent incorrectly.

To help stay on track, label the tops of bottles with storage temps until you have the conditions memorized. It's an immediate reminder and one you won't accidentally overlook. Plus, it will help you learn where things go much faster if you have the visual reminder--and that will help you become self-reliant in the lab as well.

Of course, you still need to label the side of the bottle with its contents, but you probably already knew that.
