Photo of the week

This is a photo of gloves specially designed to handle really cold stuff in our ultra-low freezers and cryopreservation tanks.

They’re a bit bulky (and quite the fashion statement!), so we don’t always use them when we get small things out of the freezers. But they certainly help prevent frost bite when we need to dig around on a scavenger hunt or have to move freezer racks around. Frost bite under these circumstances is deep — the blister doesn’t really surface for a few weeks. That’s cold!

It is a mystery why we have three gloves (instead of two sets of two).
