I work in a climate controlled office. The lab is typically kept very cold, as the equipment we use in the genetic testing generates an enormous amount of heat. Also we have chemicals the could potentially harm my lab assistants if they were to ingest them. They work a very rigorous schedule and we allow them to bring minimal amount of beverages into the lab. One gal had a tea maker that her mother bought her for a birthday gift. I discovered that JL HUFFORD sold these items. I submitted a PO for our department to purchase a set of these. They are durable, smart, and well made – like our lab assistants.
