Re: control of dust in lab

From:Rose Richardson

Dear Bruce,
Now the rest of the story!
Our new temp suite will need to contain: offices, histo labs and a molecular
biology lab. Sort of trying to fit a quart in a pint jug.  I was asking
about fume hoods and was told we have three.  When I saw that two are
laminar flow biological hoods, I knew we were in trouble.  I am looking at
some ductless type fume control to purchase and hope not to have too much
trouble from the hierarchy.  We will be in the basement, where the
construction people will be passing by with all the noise and dust they can
make.  I just hope that since the state's budget is in the red they will not
leave us their longer than the stated two years.

And so it goes will us all.
