Microbiology laboratory design

Make sure that your microbiology laboratory is designed to be safe for those working there and to facilitate the provision of reliable results.

Guidelines for the design and safety of food microbiology laboratories (Guideline 66) covers design concepts and safety requirements needed for UK–based food microbiology laboratories up to and including Containment level 2, and includes industry best practice and guidance on legal requirements. It provides a point of reference for the design and safety of food microbiology laboratories and will facilitate the identification of key considerations relating to the legislation and best practice for new buildings, updating existing buildings, moving to a different facility and decommissioning.
