This is from a specifications document asking for tenders to design a research builid¡ng. Spulkuche has me stumped.
Spülküche in a research lab facility is the place where glassware is washed and sanitized, and culture media autoclaved. A lot more is going on than rinsing (no offence to the authors of the MPG glossary).
Didn't mean to be nit-picking, Sarah. Reason I pointed this out was that your question will be entered in the KudoZ database as "Spulkuche". If then someone does a search on "Spülküche", he will neither find this question nor the answers.
