Reminder re SNF Lab Bins: Purple dots for February

Hi everyone --

Just a reminder:  If you have a lab bin in the lab and personal wafer 
boxes (WIP) that are not stored in a lab bin, please, please please put 
a PURPLE DOT on them and make sure they are marked with your Coral name 
by next Monday, Feb. 11.  PURPLE DOTS are available in the gowning room.

We are asking for your help in keeping on top of lab bins and WIP.  
Deepest apologies for the inconvenience, but we are short of lab bins -- 
in no small part because labmembers have left or transferred their bins 
to lab mates... We need to find a way to keep our records constantly 
updated which will help ensure that there are lab bins to go around for 
people who need them.  As for the WIP, December's cleanup netted 18 
cardboard boxes filled mostly with WIP and about 3 cardboard boxes 
filled with masks (!?), most of which are still unclaimed.  We are 
hoping the monthly dot marking will help keep the lab tidy.  Again, we 
recognize the inconvenience, but ask that everyone work with us to find 
a solution that is workable -- the monthly DOTS may not be the answer, 
but as it's been reasonably successful with the bunnysuits, it seemed 
reasonable to try using them elsewhere...  Suggestions for improvement 
would be appreciated.

Thanks all ---
