High Throughput Mobile Diagnostic Laboratories for automated RT-qPCR testing

3C Bio builds, sells and operates mobile laboratories optimized for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) diagnostic testing in custom semi-trailers and ISO shipping containers. Labs are configured for RT-qPCR testing, but are designed with the flexibility to be outfitted with various other laboratory diagnostic systems to quickly adapt to changing public health needs.

Laboratories will meet both CLIA (USA) and ILAC (international) certification requirements.
All designed with three-zone HVAC system with HEPA filtration and automated UV sterilization. Self-contained water and redundant power systems, for fully autonomous off grid operation.
Power supplied via dual generator systems, with full battery back-up, supplemented by 6kw of solar PV.

Utilities

  • Up to 84,000 BTU HVAC heat pump for operation in hot or cold climates, with full HEPA filtration on intake/exhaust.
  • Redundant regulated electric power via lithium battery, solar panels, generator or shore power
  • Storage tanks for potable and wastewater up to 800 liters each
  • Hand washing and laboratory RO water is filtered/UV sterilized
  • Wastewater is UV sterilized prior to storage or discharge
  • Standalone operation for up to 3 to 5 days

 

without resupply (based on average testing usage)

Supplied Lab Equipment (5 robot/1200 test version)

  • 1 ABI Real-Time Diagnostic PCR machine
  • 5 pipetting robots and all related equipment for RNA extraction and PCR prep
  • Lab Freezers for sample storage
  • BSL2 hood for sample transfer
  • Hand sink and PPE change room.
  • Computer for data entry
  • All copper interior walls and countertops for anti-microbial properties

Operation

Requires 4 laboratory technicians to operate. Each lab has an intake window to collect samples. Samples are then transferred to trays in the BSL hood, before being placed in the RNA extraction robots. RNA extraction takes approximately 3 hours, at which time trays are transferred to the PCR prep robots. The final step is rtPCR analysis by the ABI 7500, with results logged into the database for distribution to client approximately 6 hours after first received.
