The Butantan Institute inaugurated, on Tuesday (24) the most modern and secure building zoological collections in Latin America. The new location will house a collection of species of reptiles, amphibians, arachnids and insects.

With two floors, the new building of the Butantan has a total area of ​​1.600m ². The part that will house the collections was divided into seven rooms. Five to 50 m², of which four to herpetology collection and one for the collection of arthropods, and two 20m ², of which one for the collection of insects and for the collection of the tissue bank.

No better distribution and organization of spaces separating offices, labs and other administrative wings of the area where the collections will be accommodated.

One of the great advantages of the building, which received investments of R $ 5.5 million from the State Department of Health for works and purchase of equipment, is the modern security system for fire prevention.

The site has a disposal system fires through the FM 200 gas, which absorbs heat and reduces fire at a temperature to the point that it can not sustain itself. The gas suspends the fire within 10 seconds, in addition to being environmentally accepted and not harmful to humans and to the collection, leaving no waste materials and resins.

The new building also has a drainage system of alcohol and other liquids, leading them in a matter of minutes for a manhole, outside the building. Moreover, it has foam hydrants, portable extinguishers and fixtures shielded, to avoid explosions by sparks.
