MOBILE FACILITIES

bioGO® Mobile Biocontainment Facilities

Germfree’s bioGO® Mobile Laboratories are available in standard and custom configurations. Our mobile platforms range from Sprinter Vans to 53’ (16 meter) long containment laboratories. Each mobile facility is engineered and constructed to meet or exceed relevant CDC-NIH BMBL, World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines and other international standards for BSL-2 and BSL-3 biocontainment laboratories. Our sophisticated trailer and vehicle-based laboratories are deployed globally, delivering rapid solutions for disease surveillance and response, field research and testing, surge capacity, and a diverse range of other critical public health missions.

Rapid & Turnkey

Germfree has delivered more than 100 bioGO® Mobile Biocontainment Cleanrooms to our expert clients. Our sophisticated trailer and vehicle-based containment facilities deliver rapid solutions to meet BSL-2, BSL-2 +, and BSL-3 standards. These self-contained units are turnkey and provide entry, gowning, and laboratory areas to meet all research and compliance requirements. The units are available for sale or lease.

Anywhere at Anytime

Germfree’s BSL trailers offer an advanced approach to handling laboratory space constraints as needed for expansion, surge capacity, training, or catastrophic event recovery. They can be installed for ongoing operations and easily repurposed as needs change. Ease of transportation allows for strategic positioning or relocation to wherever they are needed. Leasing can mitigate risks and curb capital expenditures for projects with unknown durations.

Flexibile & Adaptable

Germfree’s bioGO® Mobile Containment Facilities are available in standard and custom configurations. With interchangeable equipment and furniture, movable walls, and the ability to connect multiple trailers, these facilities bring advanced capabilities when existing infrastructure is insufficient or unavailable. We configure our mobile units to meet exacting client requirements.

MODULAR

bioGO® Modular
Containment Laboratories

Germfree’s Modular Laboratories are structural modules configured in multi-building, multi-level layouts with placement of the MEP/HVAC on top, inside, or adjacent to the facility. Our Modular Laboratories are single-building structural modules or ISO containers with integrated MEP/HVAC. Our Modular facilities can be installed as a freestanding outdoor building or within a shell building (box-in-box). Our Offsite-built, Containment-ready facilities offer accelerated timelines, when compared to traditional construction methods, and are provided with full integration of equipment, utilities, and services.

Accelerated Time to Market

Germfree has delivered hundreds of facility projects across the globe to our expert clients. Our bioGO® Modular (self-contained, laboratory modules) and full-scale Modular Laboratories (integrated, interconnected, multi-module, structural buildings) are based on design standards and common process layouts with pre-engineered structures and common components. Our Offsite-built, Containment-ready facilities offer schedule efficiencies and accelerated timelines, when compared to traditional construction, while delivering full integration and compliance.

Flexible & Adaptable

Germfree’s bioGO® Modular Containment Facilities are available in standard and custom configurations to meet BSL-2, BSL-2 +, BSL-3, ABSL-3, and BSL-4 standards. Our facilities can be installed outside or within a shell building (box-in-box), depending on site needs. Our structures provide for full roof loading and integrated mezzanines. HVAC/MEP can be placed on top, inside, or adjacent to the functional space. Designed with flexibility in mind, modules can be added or removed to suit evolving processes.

Factory Built Quality

Germfree’s Offsite-built facilities are designed by engineers and built by expert craftspeople with modern tools in our climate-controlled factory. Our modules are robust structural buildings that can be combined, arranged, and joined to suit a variety of research processes. Standard layouts available. Germfree uses only the highest quality components and architectural finishes to provide a superior product in an abbreviated timeline.

Past Germfree Projects

Germfree brings decades of experience to every project, no matter the industry or application, Germfree has the solutions you need to make your project a success.

BSL-3 Modular Biocontainment Laboratory
This modular HVAC/Pressure Control System maintains BSL3 containment levels in the laboratories and culture storage rooms at ATCC (279 m2 gross area). The module contained all  of the air handlers, variable airflow valves (VAVs), HEPA filter  housings, and the BMS system. The facility’s supply and  return ducts were routed to a location on the building where  the module was attached. The system was successfully commissioned in July of 2008.
