What do you call your PCR machine?

Posted by , on 13 October 2014

Last Friday we came across the blog of the Sauka-Spengler lab in Oxford, and noticed that their PCR machines are called Kit and Kat. This made us think- who else gives pet names to their lab equipment? We asked the twittersphere for suggestions, and collated them in the storify below. How about your lab? Share the fun names of your lab equipment by leaving a comment!
