The microbiology laboratory should be set up as an independent area, separated from other laboratories, with access control at the door, and non-related personnel are not allowed to enter. Each room is reasonably arranged according to the work content, which is convenient for work and does not affect each other. The entrance is equipped with a centralized shift, and the culture room can be set up according to different culture conditions and types (such as mold culture room, bacteria culture room, solid culture room, liquid culture room, etc.).
Then for the functional division of the microbiology laboratory:
(1) Preparation room-the preparation room is used to prepare culture media and sample processing, etc.
There are reagent cabinets, counters for storing utensils or materials, power supplies, electric stoves, refrigerators, laboratory benches, and water and sewage.
(2) Washing room-the washing room is used for washing utensils, etc.
Because the used utensils have been contaminated with microorganisms, sometimes pathogenic microorganisms still exist. Therefore, when conditions permit, it is best to set up a washing room. Indoors should be equipped with heaters, steaming pots, basins and barrels for washing utensils, and various bottle brushes, decontamination powder, washing powder, soap, etc.
(3) Sterilization room-the sterilization room is mainly used for the sterilization of culture media and the sterilization of various utensils
The room should be equipped with high-pressure steam sterilizer, oven and other sterilization facilities.
(four) sterile room-a special laboratory for aseptic operations such as systematic inoculation and purification of bacteria
(1) The sterile room is also called the inoculation room. It is generally an independent small room (isolated from the outside room) with a height of 4~5 m2 and a height of 2.5 m, which is specially set up in the microbiology laboratory.
(2) In the air of the general environment, due to the presence of many dusts and bacteria, it is easy to cause pollution and greatly interfere with the inoculation work.
(3) In microbiology work, the inoculation and transplantation of bacterial species is a major operation. The characteristic of this operation is to ensure pure bacterial species and prevent contamination by miscellaneous bacteria.
The construction plan of the microbiological safety laboratory includes: building layout and decoration, air conditioning, water supply and drainage, gas supply, electrical design, centralized control, security, construction technology, testing, training and other aspects. If you want to build this type of laboratory, you also need to find a professional laboratory design and construction company. BOKA laboratory technology is a company that meets the requirements and is fully experienced in providing overall solutions for microbiology laboratories.
