Lab safety manuals, training documentation and other lab records all neatly filed in a row of three-ring binders. Obviously I had some fun designing the binder labels.
While I sometimes complain about how much we have to document in the research lab, I am eternally grateful that I don’t have to document as much as clinical labs do. The photo below was taken a few weeks ago in a lab that does genetic testing. The walls in several of the lab’s rooms were lined with shelves and shelves of three-ring binders, each containing patient data. The clinical results have to be saved for at least five years in the lab.
