...projects we are currently working on in the cell therapy area motivated us to develop a new series of miniPODs, which not only include cleanroom space but also provide access and exit corridor systems.

G-CON Manufacturing LLC is well known for their autonomous cleanroom production PODs, which range from 12’ width to megaPOD versions of 36’ wide. These novel, readily deployable cleanroom systems include their own air handling systems which allow excellent containment and comprehensive sanitization. The prefabricated PODs are typically built in 18 weeks and can be easily moved into any building via air bearings.
“We have multiple of these autonomous cleanroom PODs installed in a variety of applications,” explained Maik Jornitz, COO of G-CON Manufacturing LLC. “The PODs represent a paradigm shift in the design of flexible facilities, as these systems can be rapidly deployed and are truly usable for multi-product purposes.”
G-CON will launch their newest miniPOD product portfolio at Interphex 2014. They will be capable of performing in a wide variety of laboratory requirements and cell therapy applications.
Jornitz stated, “We have been approached by industry leaders with requests to extend our product portfolio further, to fulfill rising needs of scalability and swift implementation of containment spaces in laboratory applications such as assay development and microbial or analytical lab space. In addition, projects we are currently working on in the cell therapy area motivated us to develop a new series of miniPODs, which not only include cleanroom space but also provide access and exit corridor systems. These miniPODs have been compared to Google’s blade server systems, as one can expand infrastructure requirements easily and effectively.”
The G-CON team has also revealed that additional POD developments are forthcoming shortly, which will include unit operation purposes and facility platform designs.
G-CON provides the resources and experience to transform the industry by providing unmatched manufacturing flexibility. G-CON’s founders have significant experience in designing, building, operating, and maintaining a variety of traditional biomanufacturing facilities. They are familiar with the excessive cost to build, lack of flexibility, and high expense to maintain these traditional facilities and have leveraged this experience to create the G-CON POD™ solution. Moreover, the G-CON team understands that future facility designs must be multipurpose and repurposable, instead of fixed and specialized with ineffective capacity utilization.
