Who We Are
CERTEK has been involved and supported the Biosafety/Biomedical Communities since 1977. CERTEK has not only designed and manufactured laboratories, but also many other containment products to protect and keep our communities "CERTEK safe."
Products & Services
CERTEK is dedicated to serving the Biosafety/Biomedical industry with premier quality products with cutting edge technology and services performed by experienced and qualified technicians, and we are looking forward to accomplishing more in the future.
Since the 1990s, CERTEK has manufactured modular and mobile laboratories for the U.S. Department of Defense, Research Universities and other International Governments. CERTEK laboratories have been built and used for research to serve the U.S. National Laboratory Response Network.
This lab was built utilizing two shipping containers married together creating one environment. The complexity for this lab is that it was level 3 containment for small animals, as well as the fact that we were able to conceal all duct work, in a ceiling cavity while staying within the footprint of the shipping container. This lab was equipped with a Double Door Autoclave, BSC, Water Bath, PCR Hood, Centrifuge, Refrigerator, Ultra Low Freezer, C02 Incubators, all within 3 Lab Spaces. Read More
I would like to thank CERTEK for your efforts and cooperation with regard to the installation of the BL3 modular laboratory you fabricated for us. From a physical plant perspective not only were we impressed with the lab installation itself, but also, your efforts in resolving the problem conditions that arose. As you know, the problem with the steam generating unit proved to be a tricky one to trouble shoot; but with your efforts and input, the problem condition was resolved and corrected! It was most encouraging to experience this type of cooperation and resolve to ensure the unit functioned properly. Unfortunately, all too often once the sale is made it is difficult to get the assistance one needs when problems arise. This is not the case with CERTEK.
Overall, the lab has performed well through the winter and summer. We have made very good use of the facility and logged many hundreds of visits to the BSL-3 suite. It is enabling me to achieve my goals as a researcher. In summary, I am pretty happy with the lab.
I am writing in the capacity of a very pleased scientist to commend CERTEK for a job well done in the BSL-3 and RDTE containment laboratory structure you fabricated for us. The building is well designed and constructed, and it has operated very well since installation. Government program inspectors also have remarked on the quality of the building. I appreciate the way that you worked with us to design this unit, installed it properly and brought it up to operation. I highly recommend your company to other scientist needing a high quality prefabricated laboratory.
As a follow up from our phone conversation, I'd like to offer a retrospective view of MRI's modular BSL-3 project. As we near the first anniversary of operating in our modular BSL-3 laboratory, I (as well as several others in our group) have had some time to think about our overall satisfaction of our project. Since we are now settled into the lab, we can look back at why we made certain decisions and consider whether we would make the same decisions again. As you know, while the actual construction process proceeded fairly quickly, MRI spent a lot of time on this project, much of it before your organization became involved. Read More
CERTEK in general are consummate professionals and have provided us at SRI a beautiful end product. Tim, your lead on this project and your 'will do' attitude faced with adversity were 15 on a scale of 1-10. Again, THANKS!
