The new Forensic Science Ireland (FSI) laboratory building is located on the OPW Campus in Blackweston, Co. Kildare. A critical part of the new FSI facility is the FSI Evidence Analysis labs, a purpose-built suite of clean controlled environments to include preparation and sear rooms, examination rooms, SEM and PCR.


The labs had to be designed and constructed in accordance with the requirements of FSR-G-208:2015 guidelines which refer to ISO clean controlled environment stand (ISO 14644-1) ISO 8 in the Ante-Rooms and ISO 7 in the inner laboratories. A critical part of this new facility was Evidence Analysis labs which were a purpose-built suite of clean controlled environments to facilitate the identification, retrieval, amplification, testing and analysis of DNA based evidence.


The deign solution was based on our M100 modular cleanroom system manufactured to provide clean, controlled environments. This ensured that all third-party components were integrated seamlessly with our M100 system to form a continuous airtight room envelope to each cleanroom space, with robust and durable easily maintainable finish compatible with frequent wash-down and periodic decontamination with VHP.
