Reducing microbiological growth in your lab
Microbes are invisible to the naked eye. Every laboratory user carries a microbiome load of c.100 trillion microbes and sheds 10gms of skin each day. Under optimum conditions, a microbial colony can double in size every 10 minutes. They are uninhibited by gravity and able to recover rapidly following a less than ideal cleaning routine. To make your laboratory hygienic, compliant, and easy to keep clean it makes sense to optimise design and layout, purchase specialist furniture and adopt appropriate cleaning regimes from the outset. Intelligent, hygienic design can create productive, risk-managed, environments by minimising harbourage points where microbes can hide and grow.
