Kansas Health Department's Three Mobile Laboratories - Vesta


Mobile Laboratory

COVID-19 Molecules


Vesta, MRIGlobal’s newest laboratory, is built on a heavy-duty box truck chassis (Freightliner MT-55). This mobile laboratory can deploy to populations with all of the equipment necessary to run PCR analysis on site, reducing the time between sample collection and reporting.

Vesta, like all MRIGlobal mobile laboratories, is capable of running on- or off-grid, using an integrated generator. The unit allows ample space for multiple technicians to work in a safe, laboratory environment similar to what is found in a typical laboratory building.

When the mission is complete they are able to quickly pack up and move on to the next location. MRIGlobal’s Vesta Lab can be quickly adapted with cold storage for vaccine distribution in the same rural areas.

Transit Vehicle

The accompanying transit vehicle features special flooring to allow easy tie down of cargo; racks to store and deliver laboratory cargo; height to accommodate personnel to stand inside.

Founded and headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri since 1944, MRIGlobal is an industry leader in engineering, deploying, and staffing modular, portable laboratories for accurate infectious disease detection, surveillance, and response.

For nearly 20 years, MRIGlobal has been supporting the U.S. Department of Defense with mobile laboratory solutions to support global health and environmental detection of pathogens.
