Animal Research Facilities 2022: Capital Projects. Space Utilization. Flexibility. Automation/Robotics/Digitization. Capacity Expansion
September 26, 2022 @ 1:10 PM – 2:05 PM
Genesis AEC is proud to partner with Merck at this conference to share our joint presentation:
Consolidating Aging Facilities for Improved Quality, Capacity, and Costs
Animal facilities are under pressure to increase operational- and cost-efficiency, and this session illustrates a successful strategy to deliver on these goals through a case study of Merck’s new Translational Medicine Center of Excellence. Session leaders detail the designs, features, and processes undertaken to improve tracking of capacity and census, reduce animal impact from inefficient transport to/from imaging and procedures, update outdated infrastructure, improve researcher and staff interaction and productivity, and improve equipment utilization. They demonstrate new designs that optimize facility process flows with LEAN while maintaining necessary separations, and examine unique advantages of modular planning, design, and construction processes for vivarium projects.
