We’re all enjoying the quiet skies over Britain as the Icelandic volcano continues to spew ash into our air space – no one in the lab had any pressing air travel, so we can afford to cloud-gaze. But we completely forgot that our scientific reagents often go to and fro by air…and just got a Fedex alert that there is a box of antibodies languishing at Stansted Airport.

The dry ice won’t last over the weekend. Thank goodness for immunoglobular stability.
