Maine Molecular Quality Controls, Inc. Case Study
Maine Molecular’s building features a BSL 2 cleanroom, non-clean R&D, quality control spaces and administrative offices – all designed for future expansion. Their work involves DNA, RNA and Plasmid in an FDA-validated, ISO 5 cleanroom environment using Class 2 bio-safety cabinets (BSC) and laminar flow hoods.
The building signals a milestone in this life science company’s evolution from a start-up to a well-respected producer of high caliber, molecular quality controls products for inherited disease testing and pharmacogenetics. The main building’s exterior elevation features a conceptual representation of the DNA double helix composed with colored metallic shingles. Behind the panel is an Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) exterior wall system, selected for its ease of construction and thermal / air performance.
