Mobile BSL-3 Biocontainment Lab for Infectious Agent Research

Currently in use for biological research involving infectious agents this mobile BSL-3 biocontainment lab was delivered in November 2020. It is a self contained Mobile BSL3 Laboratory with engineering controls that protect personnel while isolating infectious agents. This facility was built for continuous use in the cold climate of the northeast United States without a shell building.

Our client required a fit for purpose BSL-3 mobile facility in the midst of a global pandemic for infectious organism research. The work involved serious or potentially lethal disease as a result of exposure through inhalation. The biological research involved infectious organisms that were cultured, incubated, and isolated from other site infrastructure creating a truly sealed environment.

Commissioning this facility for use with the CDC was challenging in the midst of a global pandemic however, our experienced commissioning and biosafety officer certification was leveraged for CDC licensing which happened in record time for both the client and the CDC.

This facility was built on Germfree’s proven mobile biocontainment lab platform, click here to learn more about our Mobile Biocontainment Labs.
