Having a facility which is fully equipped and easily accessible is imperative in most fields of research. However this is not always the case as some research takes place way off the beaten track in hard-to-reach areas and rural communities which do not have access to laboratory facilities. So what does a researcher do if they know that they will be spending six months on location and the closest laboratory is 200km s away
At AC Containers we can provide quality laboratory space through shipping container conversions. These steel containers are robust, durable, weatherproof and extremely secure, meaning that all of your research and samples will be safe from adverse weather conditions and potential vandals. In addition, these containers are easy to transport. For example, say a researcher has been studying a particular species of river plant on the eastern border of the Eastern Cape for the past two months but wants to relocate their laboratory to the western part of the Eastern Cape to compare samples. Now, with a laboratory constructed out of bricks and mortar this would be impossible, but with a container conversion laboratory it is simple. These containers are easy to transport and because of their durable nature they have the longevity to withstand long distance travel.
Our custom containers act as fully functioning onsite labs and can save the researcher and company millions of Rands in setup and analysis through pre-screening samples onsite. In addition, your turnaround time will improve as you can have a fully functioning lab within hours of arriving onsite, again saving you money. All analysis will be done onsite, meaning that your samples are fresh, as opposed to driving to the closest laboratory and running the risk of contamination in the process.
These container converted laboratories are not only suited to field study, they can also be used as additional, low cost research space in an industrial area. Containers are extremely versatile, so at the end of the day the containers uses stretch only as far as your imagination can take them. We are proud to say that we tailor each container to our customer s specific needs. We offer a variety of specialised features to suit your particular research requirements
