Importance of Laboratory Design

Extracts from this document...


Importance of Laboratory Design As part of my assignment I am going to analyse why good laboratory design is important for efficiency, effectiveness, safety and security purposes. The main aim of sufficient laboratory design is to accommodate dynamic lab space that will elevate utility, enhance the activity, and fundamentally efficiency. Also exceptionally examining and estimating complex in service affair according to waste flow, supplies, test volumes, staff, workstations, specimens, etc. Great laboratory design will improve a lab environment. Along with catching within attention the particular critical aspects, it is an assured concept such the established laboratory arrangement command produce an absolute influence on operative competency. ...read more.


Effectiveness of a laboratory is a simple concept, optimum utilisation of available resources, knowledge and the potential of the working people, money and time. In many cases, we see that efficiency improvements are pursued through purchase most recent instruments, adding people and in case extreme development process outsourcing and analyses routine. Typical genus of supply gains however time but will result in a loss of expertise. However, the laboratory must function as a single knowledge and expertise on a company source. A good quality of laboratory products ready for the consumer is important because quality assurance is the sum of all settings relevant to the preparation and control of a finished product. ...read more.


Ideal laboratory design elements are a must for the proper storage of toxic gases and liquids, solids, hazardous or unstable chemicals, ionising and non-ionising radiation sources, as well as other man-made biological threats e.g. microbes. Moreover considerations should also contain laboratory design of the ergonomic needs of the individual with the plant. In addition, ergonomically designed laboratory design will guarantee security and comfort in laboratories. The most important thing is for the laboratories to be flexible, open, extensible, adaptable, functional, efficient, safe and natural for all users and all equipment and chemicals contained in it. Laboratories equipped to meet the needs of the consumer, laboratory systems are structured to meet the needs of industrial, educational, medical or pharmaceutical communities. ?? ?? ?? ?? - 1 - ...read more.

    Individually not as efficient but over more. Valve Trays: Most efficient type of tray due to a high surface area making a longer contact time between down coming liquids and rising gases. Now being installed as upgrades to old bubble caps. Shower Trays: Least efficient, only about 50% efficient overall and not really a feasible project if used on a large scale.

    The difference between the weightings tells you the change in the mass of gas, but not the mass of gas inside the cylinder. Similarly, we cannot measure enthalpy, H; but we can determine the enthalpy change, ?H, when heat energy is lost or gained during a reaction.
