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.

Germfree has more than five decades of experience in biological safety equipment manufacturing. Our systems are installed worldwide and meet the demands for bio-containment at the highest levels.
Our engineers have designed a unit that combines the ideal layout, functionality and quality of construction with practical economic considerations.
Many factors contribute to the performance of a BSL-2+ laboratory. These include core fundamentals such as inward airflow and the integration of Class II Biological Safety Cabinets. BSL-2+ facilities also require optimized decontamination capabilities which include installation of an autoclave and rugged, sealed, chemically-resistant interiors.
