Packing your own columns might not be for everyone....
...but if you are someone who does this, you know that when you get that stupid slurry just right it sometimes makes sense to just keep making them until you have to stop.
As an aside, I'm not sure if I've mentioned this, but due to COVID spacing we moved most of our instruments into Bob Cotter's lab space which has been used little over the years. One thing I found was the results of someone's great slurry day because there were around 20 packed columns taped to the wall!
What if you had a great slurry day and you knocked out enough columns for yourself for the next 10 years?
