We have noticed that there have been several instances where acrylamide or ethidium bromide drops have dropped on students and it seems to be that it is not understood that these chemicals are bad for you. Just because you can wipe them off does not mean that they stop being harmful.

We will begin reinforcing that you wear coats when working with these chemicals. This is not for our safety it is truly for your safety. You should become aware of the problems that can arise. If you do not trust us, look up the effects.

If someone asks you to put on a coat, please do so!

Thank you!
