Laboratories around the world have been impacted to varying degrees over the past several months. For some, you may just be getting back into the lab, with your lab operating at reduced capacity. As a result, we've made the decision to extend the Freezer Challenge deadline to August 1, 2020. Please submit your scoresheets by then!
As May fades to June and July, we'd like to see how your lab is participating in the International Laboratory Freezer Challenge through some photos! With permission from all lab members pictured, we'd appreciate it if you would share photos with us of your lab working on defrosts, sample clean-outs, inventorying, or preventative maintenance on cold storage units. Either post these directly to social media and tag My Green Lab, or email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for us to share. Do this anytime between now and August 1st. Each laboratory that shares a photo(s) with us will receive an extra point on their Freezer Challenge scoresheet! In this way you are helping us raise further awareness of the Freezer Challenge and the many positive impacts it can have in a laboratory, including improved sample integrity and energy efficiency.
Find My Green Lab on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram. Or simply email us your photo!
The Freezer Challenge is run by the non-profits My Green Lab and I2SL and is supported by our generous sponsors: Eppendorf, Stirling Ultracold, PHCbi, and Thermo Fisher Scientific.
