AgriBio is a world-class facility for agricultural biosciences research and development, creating better science outcomes for the benefit of Victoria and Australia.

AgriBio is a A$288 million joint venture between La‚ÄČTrobe and the Victorian Government’s Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI).

Using the Suspended Laboratory Services (SLS) system, KPD developed a customised removable version to allow the services reticulation system and reagent shelving to be dismantled in future without interrupting the fixed ceilings. Strict bio containment requirements demanded by a variety of challenging applications such as entomology and others is satisfied by the compliant lab furniture systems supplied by KPD.

KPD also supplied compliant lab cabinets and lab storage units throughout the facility.
