Overall Design Of The Laboratory

Mar 23, 2018

Laboratory planning and design are mainly based on the requirements of the GLP, and strive to meet the modern enterprise's ISO900, ISO400 and GMP quality system certification requirements.


Its planning philosophy is expressed in the following three points:

1. Reasonable use of laboratory space

2, to meet the human environment requirements of the working environment

3, to meet the safety requirements of the working environment


2, embodied as follows:

First, the basic requirements of the laboratory layout

1. In a single-sided work space: The walkway spacing is 4 feet, about 1200mm; the storage height is 5 feet, about 1500mm; the operating gap is 2.5 feet, about 750mm.

2. Double double-sided working space: the walkway spacing is 5 feet, about 1500mm; the storage height is 5 feet, about 1500mm; the operating gap is 2.5 feet, about 750mm.

3. The walkway spacing between the experimental bench and the safety equipment is 6 feet, approximately 1800mm.

4. The walkway spacing between safety devices is ≥ 6 feet, about 1800mm.

Second, the laboratory's own basic requirements:

1. Lighting in the laboratory: Generally speaking, physical and chemical laboratories should face toward the southeast to facilitate daylighting; the instrument room should face toward the northwest to facilitate constant temperature and humidity control.

2. Ventilation in the laboratory: A reasonable rate of ventilation and supplemental air volume is very important for the accuracy of laboratory staff's health and experimental data.

3. Hydroelectricity in the laboratory: A rational laboratory hydropower layout system is an important basis for laboratory planning and design.

4. Dimensional requirements for laboratory corridors and doors and windows: The width of the corridor should be ≥ 5 feet, about 1500mm, and the size of the door frame (width * height): 3 feet * 7 feet, about 900mm * 2000mm.

Third, the basic requirements of the laboratory equipment

1. Safety: Laboratory equipment should consider having a corresponding safety design that can effectively prevent the occurrence of liability accidents; such as the use of countertops, the selection of materials for cabinets, the selection of hardware accessories, and so on.

2. Humanization: Reasonable combination of laboratory equipment configuration and space is the most basic factor for humanization.

3. Practicality: The products provided by suppliers meet the needs of laboratory experiments are the most realistic elements.

4. Predictability: The modern laboratory is undergoing constant development and changes. If customers do not think about it, doing the customer's unfinished business is one of the qualities that a professional laboratory equipment manufacturing company should have.
