What I do?

I am the office manager for a company that manufactures pipette tips. See the picture above. Pipette tips go on to pipettes, like the ones below.

When I first applied for the job, I didn't even know that they existed, but I have come to find out how much is out there that we didn't know about. Some plastic junky thing is being made for an ideal purpose, and making someone some money. I just invoiced someone over $30,000, for these plastic tips*. I am still stunned.
*We did ship 9 pallets of boxes full of these tips.

Call me dumb and naive but are these drug paraphenalia you have pictured here? Boy, what a dilemma.

No not drug paraphenalia. The pipette tips/pipettes are used in labs to transfer blood or different types of fluids from one thing to like a microscope slide for testing purposes. I know, my high tech lingo, scares me....

Um...I've actually used those before. We were doing assays of bovine serum in one of my organic chemistry labs. I know, I'm a nerd.

Wow, that's really neat. It's good to know a little more about what you do. It's rather interesting to me how it all goes together.
