We asked. You responded. They came in all shapes, sizes and colours. Some were seriously retro, others not so. But all were inspired choices. The #MysciLab was a brief glimpse into laboratories far and wide, as @NatureNews asked its followers “is your old lab equipment worthy of a museum? Or an art installation?”
The response saw a lot of rather bright mint green instruments from the 1980s dominate and was inspired by the Nature News piece ‘Museums hunt for relics from genomics’ early days.’
See the true wonders for yourself in this Storify from Nature News below and if you feel inclined tweet us some more fascinating pieces of equipment with sentimental value. We encourage them all.
