I agree Dry lab/ Wet lab is just ramdom terminology used by Lab personnel of what is being perform in that particular work area. You can also add Physical lab, Instrumentation lab, Raw Materials Lab, Compounding lab, R & D lab, etc.

> I go on to discuss what the OSHA definition of a hazardous chemical is under the definitions section of 1910.1450. In my mind, this is so clearly defined that we need no other definitions, designations, etc.
I agree with this, but my experience is that many lab workers have picked up the dry lab / wet lab terminology in random discussions and are confused when it doesn't mean much to me. I can think of many exceptions to pretty much any application of those terms…
Thanks to everyone for their input.
