Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics BL2 Laboratory
Pathfinder provided full-service design for the expansion of an existing BL-2 laboratory. Approximately 2,600 sq. ft. was converted to laboratory space for blood analyzer testing, creating an overall lab of 10,500 sq. ft. Design included a new air handling unit servicing the new space, and reconfiguration of existing HVAC systems to provide constant temperature and humidity conditions required for certification testing of the equipment. Power distribution was designed to provide reliability and versatility for the varied configurations for equipment tested in this lab. Lighting systems included mono-chromatic light sources for photo- sensitive materials used in the environment.
Architectural design included interior finishes compatible with BL-2 protocol and improved layout for circulation and equipment movement within the space.
