This is why you label everything

When I die, I’m going to haunt the medical school. Because this project, it is going to kill me. And I will haunt every dumbass who doesn’t label his samples with his name, the date, the project name, and the sample identities. And put them in a secure location in one of the -80 C freezers. Because I’ve spent the last week hunting down samples from someone who left, determining their identity, and isolating protein from them.

And my boss is pissed it took this long – see, it’s my fault, not his.

Therefore, I’m pissed as well.

It’s very very simple. Label with name, date, project, and identity. Place in freezer. Write down location on Freezer inventory. No one else move them. See?

Gah.
