Ecolab Inc. recently opened the Ecolab Healthcare Advanced Design Center in Eagan, Minnesota.

The state-of-the-art 22,000-square-foot facility will allow for Ecolab’s healthcare division to better collaborate with its medical device industry clients on infection prevention solutions and customized equipment drapes. The design center features a dedicated machine shop, design spaces, and a cleanroom.
