Very Busy as more and more students are doing degrees in Neuroscience, Biochemistry, Virology,
A typical day would be preparing 10 to 20 chemicals for 120 students.They work in pairs, 2 sets of 30 groups.It is a 3 hour practical.
Equipment i.e. spectrometer, balances, computers are all set up ready for students to do their practical. When finished I clear up and set the same set for the next lot of 30 students. Clear up at the end of the day and set up a new lot of chemicals and equipment for a new practical which could be a Virology or Microbiology practical.
The solutions have to be there ready for 9.00 am and practical has to run smoothly.Various chemicals all have to be made at right concentrations and disposed of using COSH regulations.
