Design and infrastructure:
In order to guarantee the quality and security of stem cells stored with Stemlab, the layout and design of our laboratory were defined by taking into account demanding failsafe standards, such as:
- Clean rooms: rooms equipped with a system to control the level of pollutants in the air, to prevent the contamination of samples during the laboratory process;
- Alarm centre: all cryopreservation containers are connected to an alarm centre, which provides an immediate alert in the event of any anomaly;
- Preventive measures: to ensure that the cryopreservation process is never at risk, we have a reserve of 11000 l of nitrogen and a diesel-powered emergency generator.
