Developing laboratories that can morph as technology applications + equipment evolve
Biotechnology firms are leading the way in providing breakthrough products and technologies from health care devices to vaccines available to patients. Harnessing biomolecular and cellular processes that improve our lives and the health of our planet is a constantly evolving industry. Innovative research has the power to create industries that fuel the nation’s economy.
For scientists working in the laboratories that conduct this research, the spaces need to be adaptable to the technologies as they continually evolve. Specialized research and development equipment may need to be replaced occasionally, and while many instruments are physically shrinking in size, some could require more space. At the same time, automation and computer modeling is transforming the way discoveries are made and the time spent in the laboratory itself.
