How can elimating abbreviations reduce errors

  • MR -

    OK here are three examples

    IPA can stand for?

    Iodoplatinic acid (used in chemistry to show up amines on chromatography plates)

    India Pale Ale

    Isopropyl alcohol

    I once had a student who sprayed chromatography plates with India Pale Ale because he had got no result when he had sprayed the plate with isopropyl alcohol after I had told him to use IPA. I had meant iodoplatinic acid.

    If you look here:

    http://acronyms.thefreedictionary.com/IPA

    There are loads of examples what IPA could stand for!

    Thus by not using abbreviations, errors like mine above can be avoided.
