The labs are really interesting. The past few weeks I've done a blood smear (which involves pricking your finger to get a drop of blood which you literally smear over the slide, stain, and then look at it under the microscope), looked at human cadavers (which was unbelievably strange), and taken a swab of my throat and nose and cultured the bacteria on horse blood agar!
As much as I'd like to show you everything I do, I'm not able to get photos of most of it. We're not supposed to have phones out in labs and I'm definitely not allowed to take photos of cadavers. I always get photos whenever I dissect (animal) organs though! But I haven't done that in a while.
Coffee is most important.
Sneaky photo of my throat swab.
