The facility pioneers new Cell Therapies for people living with Diabetes, Leukaemia and Liver Failure.

The suite consists of 26 rooms including Grade B, C & D cleanrooms, support , packing and waste treatment areas. The suite has been designed to maintain effective biological and operational segregation by using fully welded vinyl gas tight construction, time delayed access control and dedicated change areas.

A complex HVAC control system involving multiple dedicated extract fans, multiple independent gas tight HVAC zones, dynamic air volume control and an integrated HPV gassing systems has been installed to allow room sterilization to be carried out whilst adjacent rooms continue to operate. There are 6 no. Microbiological Safety Cabinets and 6 no. Isolators. The Isolators and Grade B rooms have continuous particle monitoring and all rooms have temperature and pressure monitoring.
