Product description

The mobile EpiLab | Mobile laboratories and medical units in use

Since 2005, the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Engineering IBMT ( has been developing, in cooperation with partners, mobile units up to biosafety level 3 (BSL3) for flexible, location-independent and autonomous use. The next generation of laboratory technology is being applied within the alliance of branches “Labor der Zukunft®”, initiated by the Fraunhofer IBMT together with the Saarland state government. Therefore, besides the topics of digiti-zation, automation, mobility and security, also non-customary areas (as e. g., electro-nics, automotive engineering) are being addressed in order to strengthen an active technology transfer into the area of laboratories. As a technology demonstrator, the vehicle in use, based on a semi-trailer, which has already been on the road throughout Germany on behalf of the German Environmental Specimen Bank - Human Samples (on behalf of the German Environment Agency (UBA), will be shown. This proven “already-used” unit impressively demonstrates how new approaches can find their way into applications. All exhibits of the three Fraunhofer institutions presented here in the press release, are presented in the 55 sqm usable area of the vehicle.
