Here's an interesting piece of spam I received today. I'm not clear what the source of the data described in this report is, but there are some interesting results here for those of us interested in lab ventilation issues. Unfortunately, the price of the report is beyond my means...

Primary Research Group Inc., has published the International Survey of Medical & Other Life Sciences Faculty: Satisfaction with Wet Lab Facilities, ISBN 978-157440-485-5

The study presents highly detailed data about what faculty think of a broad range of facilities and services in their wet labs, including but not restricted to: provisions for piping gases, contamination control, fire safety, hoods, ventilation, environmental control, dust and particle control, lighting, shelving and storage, information technology, recharging for mobile devices, waste disposal, animal control, eye bath and showers, testing and incubation chambers, refrigeration, documentation software and much more. Respondents also specify what they would most like to see added to or upgraded in their wet labs.

The 150-page report presents data from a survey of 180 medical and life sciences faculty from more than 50 research universities and medical schools in the USA, Canada, Australia, the UK and Ireland.

Data is broken out by more than 10 criteria, and is presented separately for public and private universities, by age, gender, academic title, country, and academic field of faculty, and by university ranking, level of tuition and other institutional variables.

Just a few of the report??s main findings are that:

17.42% of those sampled are highly satisfied with the quality of air ventilation in their wet labs.

Only 12.2% of survey participants from universities ranked in the bottom quartile in university rankings were highly satisfied with the quality of lighting in their wet labs.

Only 11.49% of those sampled are highly satisfied with the quality of dust and particle control in their wet labs.

28.16% of survey participants awarded their labs a grade of ??A?? for their overall quality.

More than 29% of postdocs but only 14.29% of professors were highly satisfied with the moisture control capabilities in their wet labs.
