Even when driving up to the new Biotest car park, employees must identify themselves with a Legic employee ID card. The building entrances and areas requiring special protection such as S1, S2 and S3 laboratories, cleanrooms and datacentres are secured with online access readers and fingerprint terminals. A total of over 400 entrances are secured online. Add to this 660 entrances including container units, offices and lockers equipped with offline components, c-lever fittings or digital cylinders. In the new building, beautiful colour lockers have been set up for the production staff. These are secured with locker locks. Furthermore, approximately 1,400 mechanical locking cylinders have be equipped at doors to technical areas and the like. It’s not only the company’s staff but also external employees, such as cleaning personnel, who have their own ID cards with the necessary access permissions. External employees who do not have a permanent ID card receive a daily ID card with the relevant access permissions. Biotest has comprehensively secured its premises and its buildings with this access control solution.
