All very good points.  I teach a bit of forensic science myself at a small college in Texas from time to time (usually forensic toxicology) and have a Clinical appointment at the Colorado School of Public Health in Denver.


I'm reminded of when I was presenting a poster on smoke inhalation, cyanide poisoning, and cyanide antidote treatment at the World Association of Disaster and Emergency Medicine conference in Edinburg, Scotland and the Australian fellow at the poster next to me was wearing a shirt that said on the front:  "Specialist in Chemical and Biological Terrorism Preparedness and Response".  On the back, it said:  "If you see me running, hold your breath and try to keep up."


I really like your idea of reagent-specific label templates.  This would be good for other laboratories to adapt.  Perhaps you would share them?
