Arctoris is the world’s first robotic laboratory for cancer research, specialising in the total automation of fundamental and applied cellular oncology. Launched by scientists and engineers from the University of Oxford, Arctoris offers a powerful platform for basic biology, target validation, toxicology and phenotypic screening. Combining the latest in cellular and molecular techniques and instrumentation with machine learning analytics, Arctoris puts the most powerful research capabilities at your fingertips.
We were tasked with the Conversion of an industrial warehouse into ground floor laboratories and associated offices on the first floor.
Skills & Results
Creation of a Containment Level 2, drug discovery automation laboratory. It required specific design attention to achieve a compliant process flow for ground floor laboratories as the space was land-locked on three sides. A value engineered project to achieve the desired high impact look within an agreed budget.
Work included mezzanine floor installation, automation areas, specialist storage, office & breakout space, meeting room and an expansion area. The warehouse required new air conditioning, ventilation, power and lighting. Office, breakout and laboratory furniture was designed and installed to Arctoris’ specific requirements.
