Our Ten Favourite #LabLife Tweets

Our Ten Favourite #LabLife Tweets
By Sam Roome 7 months ago 3283 Views No comments

Do you follow the #LabLife hashtag on Twitter? It’s one of our favourites for seeing what all you scientists are up to in your labs, and it provides us with plenty of laughs too. True, you sometimes have to sift through a few pictures of people's labradors (which, depending on how you feel about cute pictures of dogs on the internet, could be a bonus!) but for the most part you’ll come across loads of funny, oh-so-relatable tweets about what it’s really like to work in a lab.

Here are the best #LabLife tweets we’ve seen recently. We’d love to see yours!


10. When you get through way too many Kimwipes

This tweet from @UF_ICBR perfectly encapsulates our reliance on Kimwipes. What else in the lab could you not live without?

9. When you just can’t get enough data

Track all things! You know you’re a scientist when you can’t even watch Mary Berry without thinking of spreadsheets. We totally get it, @SephlyatPAX.

8. When new freezer space makes you this happy

Woohoo! We totally feel @HPNeuro’s excitement at all that lovely spare freezer space. The struggle is real, folks.

7. When the science gods are not on your side

Ah, science versus religion! Whether you believe in science gods or not, it sometimes really does feel like they’re against you. We have felt your pain many times, @NatashaTracey.

6. When science is cute

Sometimes, science is really rather cute. Especially when you get to create teeny tiny habitats. Keep trying to make #scienceiscute happen, @AyseYonucu!

5. When you’ve just gotta dance

Sometimes life in the lab can be a bit, well, slow. Dancing is the perfect way to liven it up! Do you like a bit of Sir Mix-a-Lot like @bmb22, or do you have another favourite lab tune to get down to?

4. When your cells need you (even if it’s Friday night)

When your cells need you, your cells need you. We salute your dedication to the task, @zyao2010 – we’ve all been there!

3. When there ain’t no party like a microbe party

We are loving @bmb22's tweets! Never let it be said that us scientists don’t know how to rock a Saturday night.

2. When Monday is… well, Monday

No matter what field you work in, sometimes there isn’t enough coffee in the world for a Monday. Keep on keeping on @PlantPathSecret, you’ve got this.

1. When you get a choice of ALL THE LAB COAT COLOURS

Oh, yes! Gone are the days when we were the folk in white coats, lab fashion is all about the colours now. We’re not sure how we’d help with @neurula’s dilemma though… can we have one in every colour, please?
