Ready to use laboratories

On delivery, your laboratory from Portakabin is fitted with all plumbing, data, power and gas supply points you require. Interior fittings and furniture can be designed to suit a wide range of specialist departments including haematology, histopathology, chemical pathology and microbiology.

LHC and NHS Shared Business Services framework approved

We are also part of frameworks including LHC and NHS Shared Business Services to ensure your procurement process is as smooth as possible.

Although only intended to provide temporary accommodation for a period of up to five years, the modular laboratories still needed to provide state-of-the-art facilities for the world leading departments. These facilities ranged from Cat 2 wet laboratories and constant temperature rooms to over 50 specialist testing booths, some electromagnetically shielded to enable EEG studies.
