Ph.Diva and the Mystery Band – Animation of Life in the Biotech lab

Check out the prequel (Ph.Diddy): PCR April Brite (aka the Ph.Diva) is a biotech Postdoc. April is thrilled when her abstract is picked for an oral presentation, and starts preparing her presentation. When her PCR does not go exactly as planned, she sets off on a journey filled with frustrations, anticipation, fascination and determination. Will our Ph.Diva make it in time for her conference?

Need that last gel image so I don’t come unstuck Get the thermal cycler going, and tap the lid for luck My RT-PCR hasn’t quite gone as planned As there on the gel…. is a total mystery band!

  6. livkokoloko says:

    How about working in the culture hood all day long and then discover contamination (your labmate is to blame!) the next day?

  7. LifeTechnologiesCorp says:

    “So I stay late once again as the lab detainee….” Stay tuned for the next Ph.Diddy video, will be released in just a few short weeks!

    The first vbideo was funnier. “Yeah, I shoot tips like I’ve been here all my life.”

    but biology is dependent upon chemistry

  12. ManjoumeX says:

    Make a video about cell cultures/ stem cells or somthing like that!!

  13. Astroranagun says:

    1st one is western blot & termocycler, 2nd is PCR & gel elctrophoresis, you still have flow cytometry to use for immunology ; )

  14. Astroranagun says:

    i dono but when i was undergraduate i already work all those…..cell culture, PCR, gel electrophoresis….etc…i seriously doubt that did i overwork myself to learn all those since i will eventually learn all those in master or phd…..

  15. Astroranagun says:

    i saw the other lab video where almost every lab students experienced worked in midnight alone…”hello? anyone?”

    I’ve never seen a post doc work this hard.

    PI’s perspective! Oh, the woe of being a PI, students hassling you all the time, waste of funding on botched experiments, other PIs having much less lazy students than you do. At least that’s what my PI says ;___;
