Roger Adams spends most of his time maintaining, monitoring and coordinating activities within the Bioprocessing clean rooms located at 9555 SE Barnes Rd in the Peterkort Center.  This 1866 square foot facility consists of two ISO Class 7 clean rooms and one ISO Class 6 clean room. The clean rooms contain two chemical fume hoods, two biological safety cabinets and four CO2 Incubators backed up with an APC Smart UPS 10000VA. The clean rooms have provision for up to three gasses as well as filtered compressed air and vacuum.  The clean rooms also contain the opening face of a Vertis Benchmark 4 shelf lyophilizer.
