The Basic Game Plan is always: If it ʼ s Sharp (Slides, Cover Slips) - Put it in the Stainless Steel Pitcher If it ʼ s a Petri Plate - Put it in Oscar If it ʼ s Reusable Glassware (Test Tubes, Flasks, Bottles) - Put it in the Stainless Steel Bus Pan after you ʼ ve removed any Tape and/or Labels If it ʼ s a Serological Pipette - Put it (in its Wrapper) into the Plastic Bus Pan But the Specifics will always be written-out on its own Page at the Beginning of each Lab: • Nutrient Agar Plates go to Oscar - There shouldn’t be any Nutrient Agar Plates going to Oscar Today But you might encounter contaminated Nutrient Agar Plates with some really nifty Stuff (or really gross Stuff, depending on your Perspective) If you screw-up one of your Streak Plates -- even if you drop it on the Floor -- go ahead and incubate it and see what happens. • Please wipe-down your Bench Top with Bacdown before you leave - And please don’t forget to wash your Hands before you leave with our Orange-Flavored GoJo!

Lab 1 Page 4 Lab 1 Exercises Lighting your Bunsen Burner Materials (per Student): • Bunsen Burner • Striker Procedure: 1. Get the Striker from your Drawer and be sure it makes Sparks. The Striker works best if you use your left Hand. That frees your right Hand to control the Gas Flow. Please do not turn the Gas on until you have your Striker in your Hand 2. Turn on the Gas and light your Bunsen Burner with your Striker. If you place your Striker directly over the Bunsen Burner, it will very effectively block the Flow of Gas. It works much better if you place your Striker at about 90° to the Gas Flow. If the Gas doesn ʼ t ignite after about three (3) Tries, turn it Off and wait about 30 Seconds for the Gas to disperse. We ʼ d rather you not blow the Lab to Mars. 3. Adjust your Bunsen Burner until you have a Pale Blue Outer Flame and a Darker Blue Inner Flame. Notice how the Flame becomes all but Invisible. This is why you need to turn off your Bunsen Burner whenever you aren ʼ t using it, even if it ʼ s just for a few Minutes. 4. Turn off the Gas Easy, right? So please remember to do this before you leave your Bench for any Reason and please remember to manually (L= hand) confirm that the Gas has been turned off before you leave the Lab. Please do not leave the Lab without manually confirming that the Gas has been turned off. ________________________________________________________________ Did you hear that?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
