Project Description

This healthcare remodel project created a Level 2 Biohazard Lab that handles AIDS, MRSA, drug resistant strep and other highly infectious agents.

The University of Arizona Medical Center Molecular Biology Lab project combined several small room labs located on different floors throughout the hospital into one centralized laboratory location. This consolidation of space creates more streamlined testing procedures. The lab suite includes three separate testing rooms: Reagent Prep, Specimen Processing and Post Amplification. The lab suite also includes a gowning area and a work area for check-in of test samples and document storage. A combination of laboratory systems furniture and built-in countertops were incorporated to allow the staff maximum flexibility as new equipment is added or upgraded in the future.
