The GoldBio Floating Tube Rack is one of our more clever giveaways because of the unique purpose it serves. And, with it also being one of our most popular giveaways at shows, many labs tend to accumulate these foamy green squares – enough to come up with wild ways to use them.

GoldBio Floating Tube Rack Contest

So, naturally, we held a contest, calling for some of the most creative uses. What we got were some very inspiring submissions, some from our very own team (who were not eligible for any prizes).

Take a look at some of the unique ideas that came out of this year’s GoldBio Floating Tube Rack Contest:

Yuliya M.:

“I used the GoldBio floatie to organize my cables at my desk in the lab.”
