IIT Radio Frequency Radiation Labs

IIT Radio Frequency Lab 1

Illinois Institute of Technology Research Institute received a grant from the National Institutes of Environmental Health to study the effects of radio frequency radiation, duplicating the radiation levels emitted by cellular telephones. Compliance with standards and schedules established by the NIEHS were critical to project success.   

The facility is designed around 21 special test chambers fabricated simultaneously in Switzerland.  Exacting environmental requirements including temperature, humidity, and acoustic are critical to the experimental protocol and required meticulous attention by the design team both for the surrounding room and for connection to the chambers. Additional laboratory facilities include a necropsy suite, animal rooms, cage and rack wash, food and bedding storage, control room, locker rooms, and research offices. Clean side / dirty side operational issues were critical to the scientific protocol.
