We have recently designed a containment laboratory / cleanroom for Qiagen in Manchester.
The room was required for a new DNA amplification process being developed and escape of any replicated DNA from the area could contaminate the entire client site which would mean many other ongoing processes on site would be contaminated.
We designed an ISO 7 cleanroom that operated as a containment room.
A containment room contains and a cleanroom prevents ingress, trying to achieve both was a challenge.
The facility was handed over on time and has performed as required.
