Re: [Histonet] Histology lab

From:Rene J Buesa

  Try to have a long working table all along the walls from and to the door opening.
  You could add a small "protruding" table just in front of the door to half the width of the room to increase the bench area and that will also serve as a "division" between grossing/processing/embedding activities from sectioning/staining/coverslipping in the other.
  If you want I could draw a small scheme for you. Many, I really mean many years ago, I used to work in a smaller space and I had an annual workload of about 8000 blocks.
  Hope this will help!

  We are going to be moving our histology lab to an area that is 9 x 11
(yes, that's right). The equipment that we have is one microtome ( and
all the accessories that go along with it), one embedding unit, one
processor (vip bench model), a grossing station, computer, printer,
specimen storage, manual coverslipping station & manual staining
station. I am pretty sure I didn't leave anything out but if I did,
hopefully it's not anything too big. Any input on space saving design
would be appreciated.

Thanks, Amy
