The SABC has three large open plan laboratories, each can accomodate 24 full-time
researchers. The labs are arranged in a six bay format, each accommodating four
researchers around a central bench which holds most of the common items such
as electrophoresis equipment, microfuges, balances etc.
The Department of Agriculture WA has a 16 place laboratory on level 1 with
the same overall design.
To meet the demand for bench space, a 24 place teaching laboratory has been
upgraded to PC2 standard, it is mainly used for proteomics research.
