Of all the “desktop” molecular biology experiments that I have been exposed to, this one wins the prize for making your neurons fire at another level of crazy. The stimulus driving such hyperactivity is due to the “You-Know-Who” RNase! This little bundle of terror refuses to die down, give way or just stand in the corner for a while to let your experiments proceed at a decent pace. It finds a way right into the undesired places, extending your PhD one week at a time.

Often while working with plasticware, it becomes necessary to know the actual material your beaker or petri plate is composed of. Once you know about the composition, you can easily find out details such as chemical resistance, temperature for autoclaving and the material best suited for your experiment. This is important because you surely don’t want to end up frying your petri plate or blowing up your centrifuge tube in the oven! Even when you are browsing through our website, you will encounter terms such as ‘Polypropylene’, ‘Polyethylene’ etc. and one must often think “What’s really the difference between all these?” Well, we help you figure that out just about now!
