Walker Barrier Systems, a producer of isolation and containment equipment, has built and delivered the first of eight mobile clean rooms for the Texas A&M Center for Innovation in Advanced Development and Manufacturing (CIADM).
The Texas A&M Center for Innovation is home to the National Center for Therapeutics Manufacturing (NCTM), which provides a facility for the development and production of vaccines and therapeutics for use in clinical trials. The addition of eight new mobile clean rooms to theNCTM will increase the development and manufacturing capacity of the CIADM.
The Walker Barrier Systems mobile clean room design will allow the NCTM to manufacture clinical grade materials at increased levels of compliance. Walker Barrier Systems units are built to support a wide range of processes and platforms that will be required by CIADM to manufacture biosecurity medical countermeasures.
Construction of the mobile clean rooms began in May 2013, and all eight are expected to be in operation at the NCTM by early 2014. The first unit was delivered in January 2014.
