Safety Informa on
eScience Labs, Inc. designs every kit with safety as our top priority. Nonetheless, these are science kits and contain items which must be handled with care. Safety in the laboratory always comes ﬁrst!
Always follow the instruc ons in your laboratory manual and these general rules: Lab prepara on • •
