'LabMama is a tool for people working at a laboratory. Use it to save your favorite reagent mixes and then easily calculate the amount of each reagent needed for a given amount of the solution. Internally the calculations are made with extreme precision, but you can round the results as you like, e.g. to a precision of 0.1 μl. LabMama is optimized for use in a molecular biology lab ( PCR mixes! ), but will work equally well for any similar work. Let LabMama take care of the arithmetics so you
