Containment Laboratory Commissioning
CON-TEST is experienced in the commissioning of containment facilities.
A containment facility is a structure in which work is performed that requires compliance to regulatory containment guidelines and standards to ensure the safety of individuals both within and in the immediate vicinity of the facility.
Administrators of these facilities are legally responsible for ensuring that the facilities, and the work in them, meet those requirements.
Before putting a containment laboratory into service, it is essential that the institution satisfy itself that the facility meets applicable standards. The laboratory equipment and procedures must pass a series of inspection, testing and proving protocols before pathogenic agents are used. This inspection must be repeated annually thereafter. Detailed records of these inspections and test results should be maintained indefinitely.
