* If different lines on plots in serious science are distinguished by colours, these are often loud colours. More subdued ones are harder to distinguish.
* In a creationist movie by Kent Hovind, one scene shows the pseudoscientist standing in a lab holding a glass of bright purple liquid with dry ice fog coming out of it.

* In A popular project recommended in a lot of chemistry books for children involves coating pine cones or other such flammable things with various nitrates in order to make them burn odd primary and secondary colors in a campfire.
* So common is this portrayal of science (especially chemistry) in the media that ''actual'' labs [[TheCoconutEffect will often be decorated]] with some flasks and beakers containing brightly colored liquids, especially if anyone is filming a documentary or propaganda or any kind of educational video in them.

* Traditionally, [[http://www.rpharms.com/carboys--cosmetics-and-chemists/carboys---history--colours-and-myths.asp pharmacists would have carboys of coloured liquids]] in their shop windows, so that a largely illiterate population could tell what sort of shop it was.

** In ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals'', anthrax comes, in increasing lethality, as green, blue and pink clouds of death. Nuclear radiation, on the other hand, is orange. It still gets reflected by the Chinese Nuke Cannon, which may say "Green... is good." in reference to the ''Red Alert'' series' green radiation.

* As far as electronics go, it's common for gaming PCs and peripherals to have colorful lighting. Custom water-cooling setups can use colored water in the tubes.

* There are plenty of green glowing things at the nuclear power plant in ''TheSimpsons'', including Mr. Burns. In "E-I-E-I(Annoyed Grunt)" Plutonium is shown to be a glowing green instead of the real silver color, as well as a fluid instead of a solid (note that most plutonium used in the real world is in a liquid-like powdered form). A Carbon rod used to hold a door on a shuttle closed and seen in the opening is shown as a pale lime-green instead of the real life black.

* ''RickAndMorty'' in general is [[AmazingTechnicolorWorld brightly colored]] and tends to get away with this trope, especially concerning Rick's fantastic inventions and other alien technology. This makes seeing a multicolored test tube set become weirdly jarring because it seems so commonplace by comparison. Best example of this is when Doofus Rick is making ovenless brownies for Jerry.
