Color coding with sticker "dots" helps a bit. I designate a color for
each year (5 yrs/5 colors max) On the top of that years color I put a
date (usually 6/08 whatever) and make them easier to spot. (Pardon the
pun!)You can find color dots in the office supply catalog, Office Max
(or similar) or the craft stores. Happy Holidays To All!

Hi all. I am hoping for some clever ideas on the best method to check
expired reagents. We all know that we shouldn't use them, I'm sure we
actively monitor this (right)! I must admit we occasionally have expired
reagents - a stain or buffer we haven't used in a while is in a cupboard
fridge & it has expired. What do others do to monitor & prevent this
happening? We have a weekly safety check that spot checks a certain # of
reagents for expiration, but we probably have thousands of reagents &
check every single bottle every week. Thanks for the input.
