Converting an Existing Lab Space into an Approved BSL3 Biosafety Lab is for professionals who have embarked on a BSL3 project and want to know what is not detailed in the guidelines. It will also offer a practical design/build guideline for obtaining BSL3 facility approval.

Energy Management Opportunities in Cleanrooms: an Overview of R&D will provide an overview of relevant work underway at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL).

Cleanroom Process Systems for Micro and Pharma Facilities is intended to provide a baseline overview for Cleanroom Process System Infrastructure to enable users to adopt a team approach for programming the process infrastructure for new cleanroom construction and/or retrofit to existing facilities.
