New Customized Biosafety Cabinet for Biotech Start-up
Wildcat Laboratory Solutions reports on their recent installation of a custom designed Biological Safety Cabinet at Eligo Bioscience - a biotech start-up in Paris, France.
Erica Lieberman - Head of Discovery and Automation at Eligo Biosciences commented “We needed to put our liquid-handling robot inside a biological safety cabinet so that it could be used for high-throughput screening of drug candidates against pathogenic bacterial strains. While looking for a practical, competitively-priced solution, I was put in touch with Wildcat Laboratory Solutions. Wildcat Laboratory Solutions managed the design, construction, installation, and maintenance of a biosafety cabinet that was adapted perfectly to Eligo’s specific use of our robot and safety requirements”.
Erica added “From our first email contact, it was clear that Wildcat Laboratory Solutions had significant experience in this area, since they knew and asked us all of the necessary questions to understand the safety requirements. Wildcat Laboratory Solutions proposed a solution that would meet our needs based on the setup of the lab in which the robot was located. They made several trips to Eligo to take and confirm measurements for the safety cabinet – not just for the final product, but also for the installation (which was not a trivial endeavour). For example, Wildcat Laboratory Solutions took into account the way in which we work with the robot, such as building doors into the bottom of the cabinet so we could continue to use the space for storage; and building sliding doors according to where we usually load and unload plates according to Eligo’s robot worktable. It was also helpful that they checked the design with us it was developed, this transparency ensured that we wouldn’t have any surprises with the final BSC. Wildcat Laboratory Solutions was committed to delivering us a product that would allow us to do the work we needed to do without any inconvenience. Beneficially, Wildcat Laboratory Solutions was flexible and did not propose or advocate a one-size-fits-all product, and, for a few small unanticipated issues, they creatively came up with solutions in the moment. They have continued to stay in touch and have been responsive to all of our needs and questions. I completely recommend Wildcat Laboratory Solutions to labs requiring customized biosafety cabinets designed with the needs of the user in mind.”
