DropBox Inc. Modifies Modular Lab to Assist in Tissue Culture Process

For example, DropBox Inc. has been working with many different customers to design, engineer and manufacture tissue culture labs. You may be asking yourself, what is tissue culture and why is it important? Today's blog will help answer those questions!

Tissue culture is the process of taking small pieces of plant tissue and placing them under controlled nutritional and environmental conditions in an artificial environment to produce clones of that plant by growing new tissue. There are four primary stages:

Stage 1: Establishment

The plant tissues (also called explants) are established in the appropriate in vitro. In order for this to be done, the explants must be sterilized and done so under the proper, sterile conditions. This prevents a microorganism from affecting the process. The explants are then introduced to the culture. 

Stage 2: Multiplication

In this stage, the plant material is divided again and placed into a material that supports plant growth (also known as the medium). The medium includes components such as regulators and nutrients. This stage is what causes the rapid development of tissue and the production of multiple shoots. Shoots are stems including their appendages, the leaves and lateral buds, flowering stems and flower buds.

Stage 3: Rooting

And in this phase? You guessed it: plant roots begin to grow! Hormones are required in order to stimulate this. During this stage, complete plantlets begin to form. 

Stage 4: Acclimatization 

In the final stage, the plantlets must be acclimatized to a normal growing environment. This typically involves moving them to somewhere like a greenhouse where they can be in open-air conditions with low humidity and higher levels of light. 

Why Is The Tissue Culture Process In Demand?

There are many advantages to using the tissue culture process. These include:

      • Speed - In a short amount of time, you can produce thousands of plantlets with a small amount of plant tissue.
      • Health - Because plants that are produced during the tissue culture process are often free from disease, this can help prevent the spread of disease and virus in new plants.
      • Flexibility - This process allows for plants to be grown all year round no matter what the season or weather is.
      • Space - Since the tissue culture process does not require an excessive amount of space, ten times the amount of plants can grow in one-tenth of the space of traditional growing operations.
      • Variety - New varieties of plants are produced, cultivated and introduced to the market at a higher speed.
How DropBox, Inc. Can Help 

DropBox Inc.'s design for a tissue culture lab is focused on separate spaces that are dedicated to each stage of the process with features that support those stages. For example, tissue culture requires a dedicated air system and separated space for temperature control. We utilize an externally mounted HVAC for dehumidification control and conditioning of the space. The HVAC is "single pass" to reduce contamination. It also can be used to create positive pressure to keep the space clean.

The sterilization/transfer section typically requires cleaner air and is separated from the prep/wash section. The sterilization/transfer air passes back through the preparation/wash space with an exhaust system. The exhaust hood, which is based on Class II biosafety, laminar flow, will extract air and any additional air will be drawn back through the door louver.

Our turn-key laboratories are available with storage space, counter space, casework, sinks, insulation, ventilation, climate control, windows, doors, and much more upon request. Need something more specific to your company's needs? Our design team can work closely with you to engineer, design, and manufacture a custom modular laboratory to meet your specific size and functional requirements.

      • Wet Lab - 4 ft. lab hood and 10 linear ft. of casework, sink, and counters

This unit was very unique to the current practices that DropBox Inc. uses. We utilized engineers, architects, and designers from all around the country to design this one-of-a-kind container. Unique features included:

      • Architectural - ADA design and H3 occupancy with 1-HR fire-rated walls
      • Structural - Custom enclosure designed Seismic Design Category F with 50 ft. trench drain sloped to one end and a sloped roof

The Journey of a DropBox Inc. ISO Shipping Container Modification

Posted on Tue, Jul 14, 2020 @ 09:07 AM

When a standard ISO shipping container arrives onto our manufacturing floor, it must go through a few steps before it's ready to be shipped to our customers. In today's blog, we will be discussing the journey a shipping container takes to become a DropBox Inc. shipping container modification.

Once it's determined what the shipping container is going to be and our CAD department releases the manufacturing drawing set, the cutouts are made and reinforcements are put into place to support doors, windows, or anything else that's going into the cutouts.

After welding and fabrication is complete, the shipping container is sandblasted to prepare the surface for paint or other coatings by spraying sand at a high speed to remove any dirt, grime, and/or rust that may have formed. It's then taken to our state-of-the-art paint booth that has heated air to fully dry or bake in the finished paint. The manufacturing team then begins the internal carpentry, wiring, insulation, interior walls, and plumbing.

Finally, the surfaces, fixtures, electric, and HVAC systems are installed. Then, once the quality inspection is completed to ensure that everything has been done properly, the product is ready to be loaded onto a flatbed or roll-off trailer to be shipped to its final destination.

What are the Benefits of Building with Shipping Containers?

When deciding whether or not a shipping container modification is right for you and your company, it's important to understand how they're built and what benefits they offer.

Shipping container modifications provide a greater strength than traditional stick-built construction because they are made of corrosive resistant, high-strength, low-alloy steel. The ISO shipping container is built to withstand the harshest conditions and be reused for different needs when necessary. Other benefits include:

        • Durability: Shipping containers are able to withstand most natural events and heavy weather conditions such as snow, wind, fire, etc due to being built out of weathered steel
        • Ease of Use: Their portability allows them to be transported from site to site and stacked to increase space 
        • Speedy Construction: Compared to traditional construction, shipping container modifications can be completed in half the time due to many details being able to be completed at the production site
