Syngenta, Jealott’s Hill

Austin provided complete services from concept to final commissioning and handover for this new Central Research Dispensary for Syngenta to prepare novel chemicals for research purposes in a fully air conditioned facility.

The need for stabilized room conditions and a 24 hour, seven days per week operation were key success criteria borne in mind during the design development phase.

The facility has two automatic storage and retrieval systems for trays of samples held in bottles and tubes. Individual samples can be selected or new trays introduced by the operator and are delivered by conveyor to the laboratories from a vertical storage carousel.

Robotic sampling units within the High Throughput Laboratory are housed in two 3.0m x 2.2m fume hood enclosures.

The building design took into account the need for an increase in automated storage and retrieval systems to cater for future expansion.

This was the fourth of many projects by Austin at Jealott’s Hill and is part of an overall site strategy developed by Austin with Syngenta.
