Germfree’s Jeff Serle has authored an article on sustainable laboratory design for R&D Magazine. He explains how modular biocontainment labs can be designed and engineered for optimal energy efficiency. Specialized HVAC systems combined with a range of other engineering considerations are critical for labs that are installed in remote or developing regions.
According to Jeff, “Some parts of the world lack the electrical and mechanical resources required to support a high-containment laboratory. Greater levels of quality control can be achieved when constructing modular laboratories, as they enable complicated construction and testing to be completed in a controlled factory setting prior to delivery.”
