Well, you will probably even use some. They are kind of common as soon as you start molecular biology ;)
I got 5 on my bench (different sizes) like everybody else (6 people) plus 1 set for PCR and a few multichannel one.

Wow. How would it feel... :P
I already used one out of the school but I think we should do more that seeing it. :)

Yeah we had that type of pipete that canalon showed but I remember once I was in lab and a friend of mine accidentally mouth pipeted a reactive that was prepared with H2 SO4 90 % and was interesting to see her tongue losing colour as well as half of her 2 front teeth ..... Takes a genius to put a student to take reactives with the especially knowing how attention can varry once the mobile calls let's say :p
Her luck was that I had some shampoo to wash my hands in uni so that came as a neutralizer cuz they had no soap around ...... wasn't tasty but the result was imediat ..... she survived :p
