As part of the new construction of the institute building with laboratory and office space of the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology (IME), HT Group will realize the new BSL-3 laboratory.

With the bio-resources business field, Fraunhofer IME is dedicated to the development of organisms as a biological resource. The focus here is on the development of strategies for their application in medicine and plant protection. The current focus is insect biotechnology, which is located at the Giessen institute.

In a public tender for the construction of the BSL-3 laboratory, the HT Group was able to convince those involved in the construction of the high quality of the products and the competence of the employees and was awarded the contract.

HT Group wall and ceiling systems, gastight doors, material transfer boxes and room ilumination, that has proven itself in BSL-3 laboratories, are used again. The tightness requirements of VDI 2083, page 19 for BSL-3 are also used again, which have been taken into account in many construction projects in Austria, Germany, Dänemark and Switzerland since their publication in 2018. The HT Group's system solutions can meet these requirements without any problems.

In the meantime HT Group is the leading company in the field of high-safety laboratories. Claus Schweinheim, Managing Director of HT Lab Tec GmbH, sees further noteworthy incoming orders in these areas in 2020.
