TwinGuard ULT Freezers Customer Testimonial - The Pirbright Institute, UK - 1

TwinGuard The Pirbright Institute CUSTOMER TESTIMONIAL - THE PIRBRIGHT INSTITUTE The Pirbright Institute is a world leading centre of excellence in research and surveillance of animal viruses and zoonotic diseases. First established 100 years ago, as a cattle testing station to combat Tuberculosis, it now plays a vital role in the investigation and control of animal diseases with serious economic and public health implications. As the only specialist animal pathogen facility in the United Kingdom (UK), its work is critical both nationally and internationally. With the importance of its work and specialist expertise growing daily, the Institute is undergoing a major redevelopment of its two main research sites. Having benefitted in the past from a long standing relationship with Panasonic, the Institute turned to us to help equip a new high containment laboratory built at its Main Campus in Surrey. With the purchase of 30 Panasonic MDF-U700VX TwinGuard -86ºC freezers, the Institute has already seen improvements in sample security, workflow and resource efficiency within its new high containment facility. The Pirbright Institute forms part of the UK Government’s Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). It carries out essential research into infectious diseases that pose a significant threat to agriculture and/or public health. This research helps identify disease control and eradication strategies, new diagnostic tests and treatments. It carries out surveillance activities on general animal health and disease movement in the UK and also provides National and International Reference Laboratories for ten exotic viral diseases of livestock. With significant financial investment from the BBSRC, a major phased redevelopment of both of its research sites at Pirbright in Surrey and Compton in Berkshire is underway. The transformation will make it the most advanced institute in the world for fundamental and applied research on some of the world’s most devastating viruses of farmed animals. A state-of-the-art, high containment (Level 4) laboratory complex at the Pirbright Main Campus in Surrey has just been completed as the first part of the redevelopment. Equipment for the laboratory was sourced by its Research Services Group, led by Miriam Windsor, in consultation with the scientific staff. “Our new high containment lab enables 150 scientists and support staff to undertake research on highly contagious viruses including Foot-and-Mouth Disease, Swine Fever and highly pathogenic Avian Influenza viruses,” said Miriam. “Equipment security and reliability are our top priorities. Dealing with pathogenic biological material means we never compromise on safety. Whilst the decision making process was subject to tender, we chose Panasonic equipment on the basis of the unique capabilities of the MDF-U700VX TwinGuard -86ºC freezers and the reliability and longevity of our previous Panasonic equip
