The genotyping lab has been spending an excessive amount of the budget on E-Z 96 DNA plate (plastic plates for storing samples). The plates contain the samples trough the sample collecting process in the field and the DNA extraction process. Through both process the sample plates are expose to high stress. Even though the stress which they are expose; most of the plates are being dispose in new like conditions. The plates, after a visual inspection show that have the potential of being reuse in the process. The possibility of reusing theses consumables in the laboratory could decrease the expresses approximately 80%. An experiment was executed which statistics results determine than enabling the reuse of the sample plates has no negative impact in the data produce by the genotyping laboratory and will generate savings in expenses cutting the purchase of 40,000 plates to an amount of 7,000.
