Notes

Vanessa and Danielle were both involved in a large project to swap specimens out of old Vacola jars into new screw cap jars.  The reason for the change was that the black rubber rings that sealed the Vacola jars leached pigment into the alcohol.  The dark pigment had begun to stain the specimens.
