Bio-preparation Suite

The Bio-preparation suite has been designed primarily for staff use in the preparation for the laboratory classes in bio-science and bio-engineering. The preparation suite comprises of a number of smaller rooms arranged off the large lobby, which itself provides a space for student changing prior to entering each of the two main bio-laboratories.

There are separate rooms for cold storage of biological samples for use in teaching, and also a room which houses an autoclave for safe disposal, together with a small laboratory containing both a fume cupboard and a bio-safety cabinet and work surfaces which can be used in advance of classes in order to prepare sets of materials for students to work on.

The Bio-preparation suite is set within a 8/m2 space.
