Loved it--the first time cross contamination hasn't pissed me off :P

That was great! Between cell culture and celiac disease, cross-contamination takes up a good part of my thinking, but never quite so entertainingly. Thanks!

Hahaa! Cell culture is awfully good training for thinking about gluten. All people living with celiacs should have to carry a cell line antibiotic free for two months. Then they would "get" it! :lol:

I haven't used antibiotics in my cultures for years. :rolleyes:

Nice! I grew cells antibiotic-free in grad school but in industry we couldn't afford the higher risk of downtime so we used pen/strep. We did train beginners by having them carry a couple lines antibiotic-free in an incubator we didn't mind them contaminating.

I started in industry, but doing an assay that required antibiotic free, so I've never bothered adding them back. I bit of googling has convinced me that abx are inactivated after a couple of times in the water bath anyway, so it's more of a psychological security blanket than a real one.
