February 29, 2012 — Nanolab Technologies Incorporated inaugurated its 47,000sq.ft. state-of-the-art facility in Milpitas, CA on "Leap Day" as a nod to the company’s "Giant Leap Forward" theme for 2012. The new facility more than doubles Nanolab Technologies’ space.
The new state-of-the-art laboratory was designed to maximize the performance of extremely high resolution instruments, with precision temperature control, vibration isolation, acoustical absorption, and an electrical system design to virtually eliminate electrical and magnetic field interference (EMI), and environmental and mechanical influences. This supports expansion into new analytical service sectors, said president and CEO John Traub.
The Chiller-based Radiant Cooling System was designed and built to achieve precise temperature control that eliminates lab temperature variances. The system controls and redirects airflow to prevent turbulence that can compromise instrument performance.
The web-based Environmental Control System facilitates remote reprogramming and control of individual lab environments to precondition and stabilize operating conditions prior to the arrival of laboratory analysts. This is particularly valuable when responding to a customer emergency call at night or on weekends, when all environmental systems are optimized for minimizing energy consumption and reducing operating costs.
The new laboratory is designed around a central facilities Service Module "spine" featuring double-wall construction and three layers of high-efficiency acoustical absorption material. This is the central support core for all laboratories and houses ancillary equipment and control delivery systems for gases and fluids. All major mechanical systems are installed on an exterior isolated equipment pad.
The facility was also designed to accommodate seamless expansion with facilities in place for new laboratories as the company grows and adds new instruments, techniques and analytical services.
Nanolab Technologies is a testing laboratory providing chip designers, equipment OEMs and integrated circuit fabricators with independent assessments of IC design, process control, and fabrication issues. For further information, visit www.nanolab1.com.
