We are in the process of remodeling our science building, and will probably
include a tissue culture lab. In discussions with the architects, the
subject of overhead UV lights for room sterilization came up. The
architects said there seems to be little evidence that including UV lights
is effective in reducing contamination in a culture facility, since the
lamps quickly become solarized and ineffective. Any comments about this, or
tips for good sources for culture lab design in general, would be appreciated.
