Atlantic Technology Group provided the core laboratory equipment for Radford University’s new Center for Sciences. Completed in 2016, the $49 million building has doubled the classroom and lab space for the university’s College of Science and Technology. The 114,000 square foot state-of-art science building was designed by architectural firm EYP, and features 18 teaching labs, a forensic sciences research lab, a vivarium, and nine research specific labs.
Working closely with the project design team, ATG helped program the key common equipment necessary to operate a modern academic science facility. Core laboratory equipment installed by ATG to support the teaching and research programs includes:
- A large vacuum sterilizer from BMT US to support the core microbiology laboratories and building wide sterilization needs.
- Seven undercounter Miele laboratory glassware washers to enable analytically clean glassware re-processing.
- Seven Esco biological safety cabinets to provide state-of-the art ULPA filtration containment for biological work
- Twenty customized Elga high purity water systems to support a wide range of applications including: vivarium cage wash operations, aquatic systems, glassware washer final rinse, environmental chamber humidity generation, and ultra-pure reagent grade water dispensing for critical laboratory bench work.
All of the core equipment installed by Atlantic Technology Group has helped Radford transform their science program and advance scientific research in the New River Valley.
