Idea Exchange: Laminate test strip label to avoid chronic bottle rotation syndrome

To make it easier to read urinalysis or BUN test strip results, we removed the label with the results key from the bottle of strips and laminated it. Now we can lay the test strip on a flat surface with the key beside it, which is much easier than having to rotate the bottle back and forth. And the lamination makes it easy to clean up. Also, we punched a hole in the laminated results key and hung it up in the laboratory area, so it is always there when we need it.
