Germfree has ramped up production of Mobile and Modular Biosafety Labs and Biocontainment Equipment to support the COVID-19 response. Germfree products are enabling vaccine research, disease surveillance, and global health security. Explore key solutions below:

Germfree Solutions:

bioGO BSL-3 Mobile Biocontainment Laboratory

Germfree’s bioGO Mobile Biocontainment Laboratories offer the ideal solution for providing surge capacity for laboratory services during periods of emergency, like the current global pandemic. By utilizing a fully equipped, turnkey, Mobile Biocontainment Laboratory, facilities are able to rapidly increase their volume without sacrificing capabilities

bioGO BSL 2 & 2+ Mobile Biocontainment Laboratories

Germfree’s bioGO® BSL 2 and BSL 2+ Mobile Biocontainment Laboratories offer the ideal solution for providing surge capacity for laboratory, pharmacy, and research use. Utilizing a fully equipped, turnkey, Mobile Biocontainment Laboratory during periods of high demand or crisis allow various facilities to rapidly increase volume without sacrificing capabilities. Each mobile laboratory is engineered and constructed to meet or exceed the CDC NIH BMBL guidelines for BSL-2 and 2+ laboratories.

bioGO 24’ BSL-2 Mobile Biocontainment Laboratory

bioGO 53’ BSL-2+ Mobile Biocontainment Laboratory

bioGO 40’ ISO Container BSL-3 Laboratory Building

Germfree’s bioGO Laboratory Buildings offer a new approach to rapidly bringing high-quality and cost effective laboratory capacity to any region of the world, especially during times of crisis. These offsite built, containment ready facilities meet the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines for BSL-3 laboratories. Germfree’s precision laboratories contain spacious interiors engineered to provide an ergonomic and effective work environment. By utilizing an ISO container platform, this fully equipped Biocontainment Laboratory can be deployed globally at any scale. These turnkey units are precommissioned and tested to ensure compliance upon delivery to site. Germfree facilitates all aspects of the project — delivered, installed and made operational in a truncated timeline.

Class III Biosafety Cabinets

Germfree is a leader in Class III Biosafety Cabinets (BSC) designed a variety of pertinent research and development applications. With decades of experience, Germfree specializes in the seamless integration of analytical instruments and process equipment. Germfree Class III BSCs are engineered with the optimal direct connections to any laboratory equipment, including autoclaves, incubators, and gas decon systems. Germfree BSC’s are designed with the user in mind where analytical equipment controls can be placed outside of the containment zone.

Why Modular?

Reduced Timeline: Our project timelines are unaffected by inclement weather or unforeseen construction issues. Additionally, site work can be completed simultaneously with modular facility manufacturing, substantially reducing time to occupancy.

Reduced Risk: Germfree Modular facilities are engineered and manufactured at our modern production facility by our experienced team. All work is completed in a controlled factory environment where each modular facility is assembled to a fully operational state and subjected to a Factory Acceptance Test (FAT). The FAT process guarantees the full functionality of complex mechanical/HVAC components prior to delivery and mitigates the risk of onsite complications.

Reduced Cost: Traditional cost estimates often tail to include many “soft costs” associated with traditional building construction. That is why architecture, engineering and equipment integration are all included in our pricing. More importantly, Germfree Modular eliminates the cost associated with having an active construction site interfering with your operations. By shortening the timeline, allowing for faster occupancy and reducing the risk inherent to any traditional building or renovation endeavor, Germfree Modular provides many advantages over conventional methods.

Facility Compliance for USP 800

USP 800 introduces new standards for handling hazardous drugs, adding to USP 797 sterile compounding guidelines. The chapter describes comprehensive changes to infrastructure and engineering controls. The most significant challenges are centered on build-outs for separate positive and negative pressure buffer areas.

USP 800 Venting Requirements

Consistent and reliable cleanroom functionality demands superior construction and advanced engineering controls. Negative pressure buffer rooms for hazardous drugs must be exhausted to the outdoors. External venting adds a layer of complexity to maintaining a properly balanced cleanroom under dynamic conditions.

Germfree’s Modular Pharmacies resolve many challenges of a USP 800 build-out:

  • Integrated external exhaust system may eliminate the need for retrofit projects, which are sometimes not feasible
  • Separate module ensures segregation of hazardous drugs from other buildings
  • Germfree’s pre-engineered, tested and proven approach assures all operational requirements are met on day one

Germfree Provides a Product… Not a Project

Germfree partners with HOK to rapidly deploy US-based testing facilities to battle COVID-19.

Utilizing state of the art manufacturing processes, Germfree and HOK are bringing robust BSL-2+ laboratories to market that will enable testing at a level not previously seen possible.

HOK teamed with Germfree Laboratories Inc. to design a mobile testing lab that will help large organizations meet this urgent need. These self-contained, biocontainment facilities can provide advanced, on-site capabilities for any setting.

University campuses, corporate campuses, business parks, and manufacturing facilities are provided full-time, high throughput testing capabilities via a space-efficient and convertible laboratory. These facilities, along with local governments, enable an expanding testing network to monitor disease transmission and protect communities nationwide.

Protecting Communities, Advancing Global Health

Enabling Scaled Local Testing

At a Germfree/HOK bioGO facility, it is estimated an average of 240 samples per day can be self-collected by the participants. With additional guidance from telemedicine, a test-kit is provided to participants who are assisted by limited personnel in PPE. These facilities limit the need for large quantities of individuals in PPE to collect samples on the ‘frontline’ which will soon become the institutions that scores of individuals will be returning to work or learn. Up to 80 batches can be processed at a time in under 60 minutes with high-throughput testing platforms such as Cepheid GeneCpert Express, which will be available lab options.

Process and registration information is provided on the website on outside the mobile lab. A healthcare worker will scan a QR code sent to each participant’s mobile device and provide further instruction. Following the provided procedures, each person will collect their own sample and test results will be released within 24 hours.

Return to Work, Done Right

The Germfree/HOK COVID-19 Testing Labs will offer a clear and controlled method for a ‘safer’ return to work. As companies and educational institutions attempt to come together again, rapid testing is the only way to ensure a return of infection is mitigated.
