Designing a molecular pathology lab is very complex because it is not limited to one field of study—it includes genetics, infectious diseases, oncology, pharmacology, and hematology. In all cases, a molecular pathology lab must enhance “good lab practices” and quality-control measures based on both the scope of operation and laboratory testing methodology. At Lab Furniture and Fume Hoods, we understand the complexities of molecular pathology lab design, and we will design, create, and build the ideal lab for your unique research and diagnostic activities.
As a molecular pathology design firm, we plan the space based on the lab activities in the functional areas, including specimen collection, core, and clinical lab spaces, molecular testing, blood bank, and microbiology to name a few. Afterward, we design a layout that separates the laboratory into dedicated areas based on lab activity and work phase. This space is scalable and adaptable to new technologies, innovations, and processes. Our open and flexible lab designs promote lean workflows for complex laboratory processes and control measures to monitor and ensure quality testing. Finally, our labs meet all regulatory and accreditation requirements and guidelines. Whether you are designing a new lab or remodeling an existing one, Lab Furniture and Fume Hoods can help you design and furnish a flexible, safe, smart, and sustainable lab that meets all your molecular pathology needs.
The following are some of the basic objectives for molecular pathology design:
- Support lean processes such as unidirectional, continuous personnel, specimen, and testing subject flow
- Flexible design that supports current and future needs and technologies
- Optimize space allocation based on lab activity and work phase
- Mechanical barriers to prevent contamination of specimens and testing subjects
- Encourage collaboration and the sharing of lab resources
- Scalable to handle both an increase in testing volume and changes to testing methods and available technology and equipment
- Protect the safety and health lab personnel and the surrounding environment
Key Considerations for Molecular Pathology Lab Design
A molecular pathology lab must provide separate and dedicated lab spaces to carry out unique lab activities and complex lab processes while avoiding the contamination of specimens and ensuring quality testing processes and results.
The following are the key considerations for molecular pathology lab design:
- Flexible and open design that promotes continuous and unidirectional workflows
- Integrate safety equipment and protocols to ensure the safety of lab personnel and the environment
- Optimize specimen processing and ensure the accuracy and quality of the testing procedures while avoiding contamination
