Valentine’s Day is over, but it’s never a bad idea to stock up on gift ideas for that geeky girl or guy in your life. I just discovered these while browsing Etsy and HAD to share them with the [GaS] community!
These were crafted by Houston-based CleanerScience. As a microbiology researcher, I can tell you they might fool me if you laid them out on my lab bench – they even have the streak marks on them. Of course if they were left open, I’m sure the Apple or Grapefruit scents might give them away!
Even better, here are a couple of “cultures” that will glow in the dark (for fun, or a surprise during a power outage):
So let your geeky sweety know you care with a stack of E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and others! Their selection gets extra points for including many less-well known organisms that people might work on in their labs!
P.S. – They also have some neat mini-soaps that look like red blood cells (erythrocytes)!
