Sciex relocated to new premises establishing their Centre of Innovation to provide a base for technical support, demo and application development teams.
The brief was to design & fit lab furniture for 5 new laboratories to showcase their mass spectrometry product portfolio and to allow for client demonstrations.
The labs are a key part of our demo facility showcasing Sciex’s products and solutions so needed to not just look good but also accommodate our mass spectrometers and associated equipment. We needed to design labs that would retain functionality for our associates and visitors whilst also giving flexibility to stay ahead of future developments and changes.
Substantial customisation and additional storage was required to make the labs fit our very unique needs and we liaised with Klick to design each lab to fit our requirements.
The scheduling and installation of the project was flawless. The installation team worked closely with us and planned things so we could keep our work going without disturbance. We had a great working relationship with Klick. The new labs work a lot better for our staff and are a huge improvement.

The labs had already been fitted out by Klick with basic benching as requested by the property management company as part of a general fit-out. When Sciex moved in it became clear that they needed additional storage.
As the labs were to act as a showroom the design was to be sleek and uncluttered, reflecting Sciex’s corporate philosophy. Klick’s designers advised on how best to maximise the storage provision within the available space.
Klick fitted a range of storage solutions including tall cabinets, 1000mm wide drawer units and additional underbench cupboards. The Sciex team wanted a consistent look in all the labs with standardised storage provision. This allows processes to be streamlined for their lab technicians and any visiting worldwide colleagues. Everything was to be stored in a specific place to allow for visibility of stock and quick accessibility.
Sciex’s management wanted the labs to be up and running promptly and so it was beneficial that Klick were already familiar with the furniture layouts and could adapt the plans. Klick’s site team finalised details and worked closely with Sciex staff to minimise disruption during the installation.
