Oh boy, that was a fun quiz! I’m a bunsen burner…how’d they know I like to play with fire? 😉

GC/MS, either research grade or table top. An MSD would be okay too. Preferably Agilent, formerly HP.

I got centrifuge. I’m a paramedical examiner, no longer in the lab, and I use them every day to spin down the specimens I draw. Funny.

I wish I could see all the other possible results

Dear Leia, you can! On this page, below the quiz. You will see how you can access other results in the form of fun designer posters. Enjoy!

old pipettes are reliable pipettes!

I got autoclave.
Congratulations, you´re an Autoclave! Like a silent vigilante, you undertake your lab´s dirtiest tasks in solitude and ask for nothing in return. This can push you to build up a lot of anxiety inside which keeps you under constant pressure. You work in 15 min intervals after which you need to blow off some steam. You strive to keep your dishes sparkling clean and you never forget to wash hands before leaving the bathroom.

You get along with: Liquid Nitrogen Tank
You can´t stand: Bunsen Burner

Me toooo! What does the Bunsen burner and old pipette say?

qPCR, I stand strong against old Pipettes! lol so trueeeeee

The quiz would not load. And I was hoping to be a centrifuge.

by Tea Pavlek , post on 14 August 2017 |

Hi Richard, it seems to work fine. Can I kindly invite you to try again and let us know if you are still facing issues? Thank you and enjoy the quiz!

I’m a scanning election microscope! And here I am all these years thinking I’m a Gas Mass Spectrometer!

by Jure Vene , post on 20 November 2018 |

Haha, I’m an Autoclave 🙂 Interesting is I can get along with Liquid Nitrogen Tank and can’t with Bunsen Burner 🙂 Urgently have to pass this test to my coworkers to see with whom I am dealing with!

Lol!! I am Scanning electron microscope..

by Asenii , post on 19 February 2019 |

I want to see the statistics. It can provide some insight on what types of “equipment” are more common among the academia

L’azote liquide c’est super dangereux comme moi !!! 😁
