Last Friday, at lab meeting, Advisor calmly states that he has been informed that the dishwashing machines have not been working properly for “quite some time now” which may or may not explain some of the problems the lab has been having with contamination. When asked how long quite some time is, he replied, “Several months.” Several months? As in, possibly as long as my experiments have been wonky?
Why are we just finding out about this now??? And, is dirty or soap-residue filled glassware the reason my once beautiful experiment looks like crap??????
