	Has anyone tried to recycle used pippet-tips (hope that is the
right spelling...)? For some reason a bag of 1000 tips (yellow ones)
costs 30$ in this godforsaken country. 

	I have not tried it,mostly because we do pcr and it would probably
cause contamination. I was wondering whether acid-soap-acid-lots-of-water
might to the trick? Maybe I should take a patent on this ;)
