Issues that require action and/or follow-up

1. Will the scheduled May 2 power cutback affect LOM cold rooms? Should alternate precautions be taken for preservation of perishable samples?

No, the site-wide power cut back should not affect essential services, such as maintenance of temperature in cold rooms, refrigerators, etc.

2. Why does the door at the end of the Visitors Viewing Gallery now sound an alarm when it is opened?

Although this door is not locked because of fire regulations, it is equipped with an audible alarm that will only be inactivated when an APS Cardkey® is swiped through the cardreader before the door is opened. This alarm was recently turned on to prevent individuals without activated Cardkeys from using this door as an entrance to the experiment hall floor.
