Vaccine storage rooms

COVID-19 Vaccine Storage and Handling

Labworks International designs and builds validated and compliant Classified Controlled Environmental Rooms and freezers for the storage, manufacturing and research for the Pharmaceutical and Vaccine industry, including for viruses such as the COVID-19 Coronavirus.

Case Study: Sanofi Pasteur Canadian Headquarters, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Labworks International was involved in the development and construction Building 100 in support of state-of-the-art vaccine manufacturing operations at Sanofi Pasteur. This initiative consisted of ten Grade C cold cleanrooms, three Grade C warm cleanrooms, a controlled environment room, using pharma grade cleanroom modular panels, custom equipment, and more.

Constant Temperature Freezers

At Labworks International, we offer custom walk-in low-temperature freezer designs for a multitude of Life Science/ Pharma applications where temperature deviations and defrost cycles are undesirable and unacceptable.

Our unique refrigeration cycles and defrosting methods can ensure quick and effective defrost cycles without impacting the primary space temperature. Our systems incorporate technology that ensures defrosting capability as needed year-round while maintaining the quality and longevity of the entire system.

Case Study: Canadian Blood Services

Labworks provided validated spaces of over 5000 sq. ft. for essential processing of blood plasma and packaging by Canadian Blood Services. This included seven validated coolers, six validated freezers, and four non-classified anti-rooms.

Cold Rooms (2C-8C)

Our team of professional engineering and construction professionals has extensive experience designing, temperature-mapping and constructing cold rooms that are reliable and repeatable with outstanding performance results.

Utilizing industry-standard computerized C.F.D models, we are able to ensure that the room achieves extremely accurate and repeatable temperature distribution, even after racking and product storage is in place.

Case Study: Lonza Biologics, New Hampshire, U.S.

Labworks International led the design and construction management of the new expansion of an existing large-scale production facility at Lonza Biologics. The project consisted of a validated cold room and an explosion-proof validated cold room to house the company’s growing mammalian cell culture portfolio and cGMP custom manufacturing. On top of this, we also installed a validated constant temperature freezer for vaccine storage.
