Case Studies: Medical Laboratory

Have a look at how we customized our laptop arm to fit into a medical laboratory without any drilling and making sure that each user will feel comfortable using their laptop while working.

Who is our client?

My client is a multi-national pharmaceutical company that produces medicines and vaccines.
They have laboratories all over the world and are looking for laptop arm for their new laboratory in Singapore

What did our client want?

1. My client needed a laptop arm to hold a laptop beside the researcher while working. 
2. This laptop arm has to be adjustable in length and height so that it can cater to every users.
3. The laptop arm also has to be kept under the clean bench once the user is done.
4. As the laboratory has already been clean room certified, no drilling is allowed.

How did we go about it?

1. My client needed a laptop arm to hold a laptop beside the researcher while working. 

The idea is that this laptop will help the researcher key in data into his/her laptop comfortably and easily while doing tests. This means that the laptop has to be within a suitable distance either to the left or right of the user.

I believe the laptop they were using were Dell Workstation Laptops
Seeing that there is no table nearby, I recommended the wall mounted Infinite MR116

2. This laptop arm has to be adjustable in length & height so that it can cater to every users.

With our modular infinite arms, we can adjust to different lengths and functions allowing the user to customize specifically to what he needs. A swivel arm swings left and right whereas a spring arm goes up and down.

Having 1 swivel arm & 1 spring arm help combine best of both functions together.

3. The laptop arm also has to be kept under the clean bench once the user is done.

With the function of swivel and spring arms, the laptop arm can swing left and right while being raised or lowered. This allows it to be lowered and kept under the clean bench when not in use.

4. As the laboratory has already been clean room certified, no drilling is allowed.

This proved to be quite a challenge as it took us a while to customize a unique mount that doesn’t require drilling. We came up with a design of 2 omega shaped plates, tightened together by 2 screws on each side.

Once it is tightened, along with some anti-slip pads, the laptop arm is securely fastened onto the leg of the clean bench.

Final Product

After having a few discussions and site visits with our client, we managed to come up with a customized solution for them. It fits all the requirements and can be easily installed.
