Thermo Fisher Scientific Training Center

This project built a new training suite with 4 Virtual Reality (VR) training rooms. 3 can be combined to create a 20’x60 space to recreate a sterile environment that allows the trainee to move through a space and limits motion sickness.

1 sterile demonstration area that can be viewed from a 25-person training room. Cameras and in the demo area that project to screens in the training room that allows instructors to zoom in on activities in the sterile area. The demo area is complete with airlocks so that gowning and clean procedures can be observed from the training room. The Demo area can be validated and has a double glass chase between so that smoke test can be done.

This allows the site to train without interrupting production schedules and to broadcast training globally
