I have a question regarding the design of a microbiological laboratory.
I am well aware of the requirement, but don't know if my plan is good enough.
We are building a microbiological laboratory, in which we will handle the direct work with the bacteria. Closed petridishes will be transferred into a second room holding the incubators. This room has a door to the production area. From this room they will be transferred back to the microbiological laboratory without any door to production. Here the petridishes with growth will be autoclaved after use.
Requirements are in ISO/TS 22002-1:2009 Prerequisite programmes on food safety — Part 1: Food manufacturing
5.5 Laboratory facilities
In-line and on-line test facilities shall be controlled to minimize risk of product contamination.
Microbiology laboratories shall be designed, located and operated so as to prevent contamination of people, plant and products. They shall not open directly on to a production area.
Best regards :)
