Lifescience: What is it all about?
In the life science field, building technology is based on the specific needs of clean rooms. These are used in healthcare and in the pharmaceutical, medical device, food & beverage and microelectronic industries. Because of a variety of regulations and workplace requirements, life science environments have very specific constraints: Building and room automation has to meet legally mandated environmental requirements, including air pressure, temperature, humidity, particle count and air flow. Critical parameters are monitored and logged on an ongoing basis. Special video surveillance, safety and security technology protects against unauthorized access and cross contamination. If a fire or emergency occurs, certain conditions must be maintained to prevent toxic substances from being released into the environment. Today’s fire detection systems typically offer a Genuine Alarm Guarantee and use special extinguishing gases.
