The world of the laboratory is changing
Digitalization is also making its unstoppable entrance in the laboratory. Against this background, various processes and structures must be rethought. This requires network-compatible laboratory equipment with intelligent and smart functions, complex holistic automation concepts and efficient interface solutions. In the age of personalized batch size 1 and personalized medicine, huge amounts of data are generated. This results in new requirements for data handling and secure data storage as well as for the entire remaining laboratory environment. In addition, there is also the increase in legal regulations.
With the increasing complexity, efficient and safe working in the laboratory is becoming more and more important. The partial automation of laboratory steps with simultaneous optimization of the work processes are essential prerequisites for meeting these objectives. The laboratory environment, consisting of spatial structure and media technology supply, must be planned in such a way that it is individually adapted to the current needs of the users. At the same time, they must ensure that they can be adapted quickly and easily to new developments.
Biological agents and biosafety
Not only since the COVID-19 pandemic the correct handling of biological agents in laboratory planning has been an issue. An essential part of this is the creation of the right infrastructure to protect employees and the environment. This involves solving issues such as creating an environment that is as airtight as possible or the possibilities for decontamination. This is highly dependent on the desired Biosafety Level (BSL), especially if the BSL 3 or BSL 4 is to be realized.
If biosafety is considered in the extended environment, solutions must be offered throughout the entire healthcare system. Questions that must also be dealt with in primary care centers, doctors’ practices and pharmacies.
Within the framework of laboratory planning and biosafety, we are working on integrative approaches to meet the above-mentioned requirements. We are happy to take over the integrated planning and execution of small and large projects. But we can also take over the service provision of proportional planning tasks in projects, such as the building services planning of ventilation systems and media such as heating, cooling and medical gases alone. Due to the interdisciplinarity within our company, we can put together project teams to suit any task. Digitalization, keyword Laboratory 4.0, is our constant companion. The digital twin is developed and set up from the beginning of the project.
Our core markets are the DACH region (Germany-Austria-Switzerland) and the Alps-Adriatic region (Southern Austria-Slovenia-Northern Italy).
Our services range from project development, classical engineering, authority engineering, purchasing process, execution supervision to commissioning and participation in the operating permit. Together with our partners, we are also happy to support you in risk and hazard assessment within the scope of biosafety and biosecurity.
