[Histonet] Hard of hearing, anyone?

Dear Histonetters, perplexed with what I am working with and wondering if
anyone else is having this trouble.

With all the automated equipment in the labs, refrigerators, centrifuges,
auto this and auto that, has anyone ever or routine performs a decibel
reading in a histology lab?

The reason I ask is that we have four ultramicrotones; a microwave, a
building lab vent a hood, two counter top vents and two venting hoods which
vent two processers, 3 refrigerators and a cryostat in a square footage of
20' x 25'. When someone walks in, I cannot hear a thing they are saying to
me, I have to be right next to them and it is such a relief when I do walk
out of the lab, so soothing to my ears, the quiet.
