Whether your lab has a singular focus, or each bench performs different experiments, the lab manager bears the ultimate responsibility to keep everything organized.
Color code your lab for efficiency:
Color coding is a simple tool for identifying laboratory items based on personnel or application.
Laboratory equipment has been revitalized with splashy colors to help differentiate small items like mini-centrifuges, vortex mixers and even manual pipettes.
The savvy lab manager can designate lab equipment for the clean room with one color, the PCR hood another and general benchtop work yet a third.
There are now conical tubes with colorful caps, tube racks and cryogenic boxes in different colors too.
Colorful freezer boxes make it easier to locate samples while colorful tubes and racks help set up reagents in sequential order.
Are colored boxes, tubes and colored racks enough to organize a lab?
Despite these progressive innovations, laboratory organization tools have been limited to a basic pallet of colors, generally primary colors like blue, red, yellow and green.
In addition to offering a small scale of color choices, scientists who are color blind do not benefit from these color options.
