3 Aug 2020 2 minute read comments Leonis

         Handling stool specimens may not be fun, and I don't need to go into the details. The cultures, on the other hand, are rather straight forward. It's another method to detect diseases in a patient. Note the culture mentioned here is different...

         Part of working in the lab is renewing my certification every three years. To do this, I have to complete 36 continual education credits (CEs). While my work provides free CEs, it's not always practical. The downside has always been tha...

         Many of us know about memes. We live, breathe, and bath in them. Sometimes, we even go out of our ways to make dank memes (that doesn't always melt steel beams).          Some of the best memes I have come across in my time are those with vi...

         A while back, I talked about some of my silver wishlist. Recently, I managed to inch closer to realize that list. Now, you could say that I'm getting ready for some undead/monster uprising.                  To sum it up: it's a 5-oz pi...

         Some of you have been observing where Hive stands on CoinMarketCap and @coingecko. Recently, Hive has been hovering around #100, give or take.              Some of you might be panicking, asking yourself why you are holding on to this sil...

Questionable Practices of the Past: Mouth Pipetting

22 Jul 2020 1 minute read comments Leonis

         Throughout my training, I've heard of the fabled technique of mouth pipetting. As the name suggests, it involves using pipettes, but with your mouth. Sound scary yet?          For those of you who have taken laboratory courses, you are most...

         You know masks have been a hot topic in the US since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. It became a charged issue. In a world where politics dominate thoughts, logic cannot prevail. I see people wearing masks in public, but some activit...

           That PSA has been up for months in the department. And yet, I still have not come across a culture with possible Candida auris. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the organism, it is one of the latest worries under the CDC watchfu...
