Re: Lab space logistics, a brain teaser

From:Vicki Gauch

 RUN !!!!!  Unless you know a magician or a miracle worker ....just leave and go on a nice vacation until someone figures out that the broom closet is TOO small for you to work in..... I hear Australia is beautiful..  :o)

Good luck and have a great day,

I am very interested in the size of your histology laboratories.  I have
been given a lab space that measures 12 ft 11 inches by 16 ft long.
Somewhat analogous to a broom closet with the following things going into
the space

a 6 ft chemical fume hood
VIP processor
2 cryostats
embedding center
small freezer, floor model
computer/tower, printer
2 microscopes one with photomic exposure setup
Faxitron (maybe)
filing cabinet
pH meter, balance, mag stirrer
hopefully an island to actually work, special and immunostaining

and Me!  I am going on a diet to take up less space, a mere shadow of myself! 

I also have a JB-4 microtome, knife breaker, Shandon knife sharpener, not
to mention other equipment.

Not sure whether to weep or retire
