Janny Huang, who has been with MineArc for over a decade, shares her journey and insights towards the progress of women’s roles in the industry.
One of the biggest questions we get once a chamber has been bought, is “what happens now?”. Once a chamber has been purchased and delivered to site, it needs to be put through the commissioning process.
What are the actual benefits of using a portable plug-and-play controlled environment or laboratory in favour of a more traditional design-and-construct civil project?. It’s a valid question; and after two years of working with MineARC Systems to help develop the Biora range, is one that I can now confidently answer.
