KPD is located at the new premises of the Faculty of Biology of the University of Gdansk, Baltic Campus, built under the Operational Programme Infrastructure and Environment, co-financed by The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). It possesses independent, fully equipped BSL-2 laboratories (with a total area of circa 100 square meters), including a laboratory for microbial identification and characterisation, samples repository, lyophilisation room, room for liquid nitrogen storage, and office space dedicated to the storage of data and documentation pertaining to the culture collection.
With the Department of Microbiology located on the same floor, KPD shares a media-preparation room, glassware washing room, sterilisation room with several autoclaves, cold storage rooms, incubation rooms, dark room and stockroom for safe chemical storage. Also, it has full access to molecular biology laboratories located in the Department of Microbiology and all shared infrastructure within the Faculty of Biology.
Access to all laboratories is under electronic surveillance with CCTV cameras and restricted to the staff with digitally programmed key cards preventing unauthorised access to the facilities and ensuring that only the qualified personnel within the facilities can access the stored biological material.
