Abstract: The difference between a successful and a failed laboratory protocol can be maddeningly simple. Small experimental details ordinarily taken for granted by veteran scientists can become stumbling blocks for students starting out at the bench. Learning the hard way and reinventing the wheel only add frustration and delay to engineering objectives. As a sixth year judge, I have observed some of the common obstacles faced by teams in the wet phase of their projects. Drawing upon two decades of bench experience and five years of technical support for customers of molecular biology reagents, I will present information that will help you with your device constructions.
