Lab Space become a biotech 2

All labs are built to specifications for NIH-approved biosafety level 2, and a limited number of labs are rated for biosafety level 3. With continued expansion and new build-outs, HudsonAlpha can accommodate specific requests for optimal space and special requirements.

  • Each laboratory is designed to operate negative with respect to the corridor to protect occupants outside of the laboratories.
  • Each floor of the facility is equipped with a building pressurization control that ensures that the floor remains positive to the exterior helping the building avoid drafts that plague other laboratory buildings.
  • Support labs can be alternated from positive pressurization to negative to accommodate the different functions being performed, as required.
  • Each receptacle is on a dedicated circuit, allowing flexibility in the placement of larger equipment. About one-fourth to one-third of the outlets are 208-volt receptacles to accommodate the high concentration of freezers typically used.
  • Each lab is on a dedicated circuit allowing independent operation from other occupants’ loads.
  • HudsonAlpha has freezer farm space to accommodate up to 216 minus-80 degree units.
