Fig. 8 Diagram for a department of analomv student entering class: provision should be mode tn the original planning lor approximately 60 tray positions to accommodate enrollment increases up to 96 students.
A crematory, if provided, should be located in the cadaver preparation and storage unit.
The department will require storage space for tissue embedments and gross organs. The same type storage as that described for pathology should be provided.
Biochemistry Figure 9 shows a space diagram for a minimum department of biochemistry. Table 10 gives the area for the department for the 64- and 96-student class hypothetical schools.
Teaching Laboratory. The conventional teaching laboratory is similar to those of other basic sciences. Island-type laboratory benches approximately 16 feet long will accommodate eight students, four on either side. The bench should ha vs a stone sink at one or preferably both ends and a continuous drain trough or cup sinks (one for each two students), a continuous reagent shelf, and individual service out* lets for each student. Services required are gas, air, vacuum, cold water, and electricity. Bench tops should bo stone or acid-resistant composition surfaces.
A large chalkboard, smaller chalkboards for each 16 students, n retractable projection screen, and a bulletin board should be provided. An instructor's table of desk height with knee space, cabinets, cup sink, electrical outlets, cold water, and gas should be provided for demonstration to (he class.
The teaching laboratory should be adjacent to auxiliary rooms of the medical student teach ing laboratory Fixed equipment nod mechanical facilities should be similar to those furnished the medical student.
Preparation Room. A preparation room adjacent to the teaching laboratory is used for mixing reagents and for storing chemicals and glassware. It may be divided by partitions into alcoves for separating issue, storage, arid preparation. These alcoves should have laboratory benches, sinks, and cabinets for use as a research area. The storage of glassware, chemicals, and other stocked items requires adjustable shelving. The issuing area requires cabinets with small drawers and an issue window or door opening into the teaching laboratory.
Glassware Washing and Storage. Commercial glass washing and drying machines are often employed. In addition, a large sink with drainboards is required, with space for glassware carts, a worktabie for glassware sorting, and shelves for storage.
Physiology Figure 10 shows a space diagram for a minimum department of physiology. Table 11 gives the net area for a physiology department.
Teaching Laboratory. A conventional teaching laboratory may be used by more than one department. The laboratory described here is a conventional laboratory designed for specific use by the department of physiology. With only minimal additional equipment this laboratory is suitable for pharmacology teaching.
Many animals are used in physiology teaching and stand-up tables 37 in, high with casters to accommodate four students, two on each side, are suggested. A shelf under the top should be provided as storage space for animal boards. A service island may be provided with gas, electrical, air, and vacuum outlets, Distilled water should be piped into one place in each laboratory or preparation area and carboys should be used at work stations. A floor drain should be installed between each pair of service islands.
A 4-ft fume hood should suffice for eight students. Space for incubator« should be considered unless they can be placed on counters.
Chalkboards, a bulletin board, and a retractable projection screen should be furnished similar in size and number to those in other teaching laboratories. Space for an instructor s table at the front of the laboratory is required-
Graduate Student Teaching Laboratory. It should be located adjacent to auxiliary rooms of the teaching laboratory. Fixed equipment and mechanical facilities should be similar to those furnished the medical student.
Student Research Laboratory. Furniture and mechanical facilities may be similar to those of a typical research laboratory.
Equipment Storage An equipment storage area, adjacent to the teaching laboratory, is needed, as is desk space for a stock clerk and technician- A 31-in -high pounter with gas, air, vacuum, and electrical outlets and cabinets should be installed for testing and preparing equipment. An issua window or door opening into the teaching laboratory is desirable. Space for assembly of equipment to be issued and tor glassblowing and soldering should be provided.
Shielded Room. If required by the program, a shielded room distant from obvious electrostatic interference must be provided-
