Lab Vibration and Acoustics: It’s Not A Rock Concert

Many of us have felt vibrations in a building. For example, you may have been sitting quietly working away at your desk, and a group of employees walks by. You felt the subtle vibration of the group as they passed, and it may have distracted you or stopped you from your work. This is similar to how vibration affects lab equipment. The vibration is transferred to the equipment, changing the testing or processes and even drastically affecting the outcomes.

Similarly, when working in an office environment, unwanted and startling noises can distract your concentration and can significantly impede your productivity. This also affects users in labs and, in many cases, impedes the function of noise-sensitive equipment, including very sensitive microscopes. Furthermore, labs with vivaria usually also need strict noise control to ensure that environmental factors do not disrupt the subjects’ behavior.

As the industry moves increasingly toward compact robotic automation, vibration control and treatment of acoustics are becoming a standard operating procedure in labs. In this webinar, lab design experts will weigh in on how to mitigate these issues and will provide strategies to improve and protect research outcomes.
