In Agents of SHIELD S02E03, Jemma Simmons is shown working for HYDRA in their scientific labs. Only, the lab coat she's wearing is black!
What I don't get is, aren't lab coats white to easily identify any chemical spilled on them? In that way, any damage done to the person working with those chemicals or their surroundings can be predicted and treated. If lab coats are black, they're basically like raincoats. There just to prevent direct contact.
Am I missing something here? Or is my whole concept of lab coats completely wrong?
