X-RAY SPECS

Forget the cheap, plastic x-ray specs from yesteryear. These battery 
powered spectacles contain a real x-ray! Hold your hand in front of your 
face to see your bones wiggling around. Count your friends' vertebrae 
and locate joint articulations. Great at lab parties!

$11.99 each 



LEONARD THE TALKING LAB MOUSE

Turn Leonard on and he occasionally twitches in his cage. Pick him up by 
his tail and he says, ``Hey, put me down!'' Covered with real mouse fur,
Leonard is the most realistic looking ersatz mouse on the market.

$14.99 each 

 
REMOTE-CONTROLLED GEIGER COUNTER

Looks and acts like a real Geiger counter but you can make the needle `jump'' at the press of a button. Hide the remote control in your 
pocket and make the needle move when people check themselves for 
radiation. They'll go into hysterics thinking they have received a 
lethal dose! Yuks galore!

$259.99 each 

 

GLOW-IN-THE-DARK PIPETTE TIPS

You will be the talk of the lab with these handy glow-in-the-dark 
pipette tips. They fit standard 20, 200, and 1000 microliter pipetmen.

$19.49 for bulk bag of 1000 


SNAKE-IN-A-REAGENT-JAR

Three spring snakes fit into our realistic chemical reagent jar. People
expecting to weigh out chemicals will be ``attacked'' by the snakes! A 
laugh riot!

$4.99 for reagent jar and three snakes 



CENTRIFUGE NOISES

This mini tape recorder fits behind any standard ultracentrifuge. As the
centrifuge accelerates, the mini recorder makes incredibly loud scraping sounds to simulate the rotor becoming unbalanced. Watch them run for 
cover as they think the rotor is about to go through the wall!


$13.99 each 



THE SPILLED EXPERIMENT GAG

Based on the old ``spilled beer gag'', an Erlenmeyer flask is tipped on 
its side with the ``contents'' spilling out. The ``liquid'' is really a 
transparent, solid plastic but only you will know that. Perfect for 
dealing with neatness nuts in the lab.

$4.99 each 



DRIBBLE BEAKER

Looks like a real beaker but when the researcher pours out any fluid, it 
dribbles down the side! More fun than a barrel of monkeys!

$5.99 each
