Building a Nano-Friendly Facility
With the increasing emphasis on research and development in nano-scale subjects—including nanomedicine, nanofabrication, and the imaging of nano-scale structures in bioengineering, proteomics/genomics, and other emerging fields—facilities must be planned and designed to meet the complex physical requirements of highly sophisticated imaging and analysis equipment while efficiently meeting the needs of the scientists who use these instruments. In particular, the use of MRI, NMR, and SPECT-CT instrumentation, and the installation of nanofabrication clean suites raise challenging planning and design issues, including space planning, structural capacity, vibration and noise isolation, magnetic and radiofrequency shielding, and instrument quench exhaust. Here is a look at the issues and practical solutions.
