Laboratory ​3D Virtual Tours

3D Virtual Tours for Laboratories

EPA Laboratories - Forensic Labs - FDA Labs - Bio-hazard Chemical Labs - CDC Labs - Analytical Laboratories

In a time where transparency in the scientific process is extremely critical, virtual tours are providing laboratories with the necessary tools to help clients, customers, and consumers visualize their facility and its laboratory processes. Quite often, third party entities have a need to learn about the inner workings of a laboratory environment, however, laboratory personnel know firsthand the problems involved with providing in-person tours. Work disruption, privacy issues, and sample contamination are just a few of the issues facing labs when requested to give a tour of their facility. 

Having to put aside time sensitive work and confidential data preparing for lengthy laboratory tours are no longer necessary with the incorporation of a 3D Virtual Tour into your workflow.  Laboratories can now provide future clients, upper management, regulatory agencies and other interested parties with the opportunity to see and understand your facility's design and workflow process in an immersive and interactive way, allowing them to become familiar with your full suite of services, and sampling capabilities.  As your 3D virtual tour provider, we can create a 3D representation of your facility designed to deliver a comprehensive look into your testing or analytical facility freeing up you and your staff to conduct the important testing your lab was designed to do.

What types of laboratories benefit from a 3D Virtual Tour?

Forensic Labs use 3D Virtual Tours to Connect with the outside. ​Forensic labs have been in the public eye ever since ​they were ​prominently featured in popular crime scene ​shows such as CSI and NCIS. Ever since ​their front stage debut, young budding scientists and crime scene drama ​aficionados everywhere have been fascinated with the science and instrumentation behind the crime solving techniques employed in this​ line or work.  

​Entities working with the forensic labs to perform analysis work such as law enforcement, judicial personnel, and others involved with the investigative proceedings are often in need of seeing behind the scenes of the sample analysis performed in the lab. Once ​isolated from the world around them and working somewhat autonomously, the need for ​increased ​transparency into the work ​forensic labs do is greater now than ever before.  

Providing curious viewers a sneak peak into these environments while good intentioned however, can lead to all sorts of issues. Due to chain of custody regulations with accredited labs, all visitors must have prior approval before entering the lab with some areas restricted from visitor access.  Laboratory workers may be forced to store sensitive data away out of the view of non-laboratory ​personnel causing ​​a delay in work production. Time-sensitive laboratory analysis ​must be put on hold until such lab tour is completed again causing an unknown period of work interruption. Those giving the tour must also take time time out of their busy schedule to lead the tour while essential laboratory workers may be asked to stop and explain the work they perform and its connection to the ​forensic examination process. This ​time consuming distraction takes up valuable time and resources for both the laboratory and the visiting entity. 

3D Virtual Tours can ​overcome all of these ​obstacles by providing unrestricted 24/7 virtual access into these secure facilities anytime day or night. Non-laboratory employees including associated police ​personnel, court staff, partnering laboratories and anyone else needing a firsthand look into the crime lab instrumentation and associated processes can view the space anytime from their desktop or mobile device.    

​Analytical and Environmental Testing Laboratories are seeing a huge benefit from 3D Virtual Tours.  These labs typically offer a wide range of analytical ​testing including the organic and inorganic analyses of water, groundwater, storm water, wastewater, soil and hazardous waste samples. Labs of this nature service a large variety of clients some of whom wish to gain a better perspective on the service capabilities of the laboratory. Photos and flyers don't always show the true capacity and abilities of the lab.  3D Virtual Tours however give prospective clients and customers a true to life, fully comprehensive view of the laboratory space.  

Oftentimes labs are designed or modeled after other labs in neighboring states.  3D Virtual Tours can provide the schematic backbone for these designs either for ​the benefit of the architect or engineer constructing the new facility or simply to educate the new lab in the structural and laboratory elements necessary for the build-out of their new lab.  Together these labs can assist one another using the 3D Virtual Tour as a helpful walk-through guide in the​ pre-design and construct​ion phases of the project.

​​Our 3D tours can also be customized with Media​ Tags. These are interactive hot spots containing video, images, hyperlinks, and text descriptions that can be linked to specific physical locations in your ​tour. They are an excellent way of communicating valuable information to your ​clients and customers such as ​specific ​analysis testing, specialized instrumentation, storage capacity, and overall design layout of the facility.  Imagine v​iewers of your ​virtual space ​not only being able to explore your ​lab in 3D but also learning more about​ the true capabilities of your lab through the use of beautiful imagery, videos and hyperlinks to additional information pages.

At Step By Step 3D, our highly skilled 3D Virtual Tour experts will apply their industry knowledge to help ​​visitors ​of your virtual ​laboratory get a true understanding of the inner workings and functional capacity of your physical lab in a completely interactive 3D virtual tour walk through. 

Give us a call today to schedule your site visit so we can work together to bring this one of kind experience to your peers.

I will use you again!

I love the 3D Virtual Tour & Photography they did of my office. They came in on schedule and completed the project quickly. They retook a couple of angles to ensure that what they were producing was going to be complete. Thank you. I will use you again when I want great 3d shots of my hearing aid office.
