Our laboratory types

Analytical and Quality Laboratories

In analytical and quality laboratories products and materials are tested against conformity to specifications and the absence of impurities. These laboratories form an essential component within the production and the supply chain.

Biosafety Laboratories

The purpose of biosafety laboratories and suites is the containment of potentially harmful biological agents. The containment is achieved through a thoughtful combination of methods, facilities and equipment. The levels of containment go from BSL1 to the highest level of BSL4.


In cleanrooms the number of dust particles permitted per volume of air defines the classification of the clean room. All aspects of the people and materials flows, the mechanical systems and the room finishes are to be consistent with each other.

Clinical and Medical Laboratories

These laboratories are equipped for diagnostic tests on tissue, blood and other patient samples. They can be subdivided into various processes such as pathology, serology, histology, virology, bacteriology and molecular biology with PCR-technologies.

Incubator Laboratories

Laboratories conducting microbiological, and cell or tissue culture work require incubators to protect these cultures from the environment. Parameters such as temperature, humidity, and O2 and CO2 levels need to be controlled.

Production Laboratories

Pilot production or small volume laboratories as a scale-up between R&D and commercial production, or for the production for clinical trials, form a category on their own. Such laboratories can be found in the pharmaceutical, biotech, and the science and technology sectors.

Research & Development (R&D) Laboratories

This category covers a broad spectrum of laboratories with various risk qualifications and containment requirements such as: PBOEL, Bio Safety Laboratories, laboratories with radio-active risks etc. Also specialized laboratories for seed, crop, material, and life sciences research are part of this category.


We successfully operate across a broad spectrum of sectors and industries such as: the pharmaceutical and biotech industry, the healthcare and education sectors, and science and technology companies.

In terms of geographies our home markets are Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany and Luxemburg, and we consider the whole of Europe as our potential market. We work for multinational companies to successfully deliver project solutions across multiple sites in different countries.
