Built to contain the most hazardous agents in the world

Biocontainment applications require the highest level of process control, reliability, cleanability, and containment of any industry we work with. Our Modular cleanrooms meet these challenges through a variety of niche process and personnel flow designs paired with decades of facility engineering experience. Our modular BSL laboratories include entry rooms, gowning rooms and storage, personnel air locks (PALs), Material Air Locks (MALs), shared corridors, restrooms, mechanical rooms, and more.
