Our storage lab

Two fully independent clean rooms have been installed for resilience and back-up. All cryogenic freezers operate independently of electrical power requirements.

Every BioVault critical process runs off a large (20 kW) uninterruptible power supply, allowing the company to fully operate independently of the mains electricity supply for essential processing operations. Paired ultrasonic and infrared curtain sensors detect movement and problems, anywhere in the facility. Electronically controlled access and security throughout the building monitors who goes where and when. 24 hour alarm monitoring is supported by staff and police call out routines.

Human tissue bank is directly linked to both local police and the firestation via a redcare contract.  Both police and fireservices are 1 minute away from the facility. Sophisticated fire monitoring detection (both heat and smoke) has been integrated throughout the facility.  Detection is additionally concentrated at risk points. Independent and random security patrols occur 365 days per year.

BioVault employs two fully audited bulk suppliers of liquid nitrogen, one for back up.
BioVault's web-based proprietary human tissue management system is backed up by Telehouse which provides the most secure and resilient web security platform in Europe.
All company records are held offsite at two geographic locations in resilient records databases.  Each facility has mirrored processes and multi RAID storage devices on multiple servers.

BioVault's facilities are specifically positioned on a designated low risk site, with minimum risk from vandals, activists, terrorists, major international flight paths and disaster scenarios including flooding.

All BioVault laboratory staff are regularly assessed through a CPD (Continuous Professional Development) for training purposes.
