Air/C-130 Transportable Laboratories

Air-transportable units provide the fastest approach available for rapid deployment of a comprehensive analytical and/or testing lab.

Our Air-Transportable Mobile Labs provide ultimate flexibility combined with maximum capacity. We offer both truck and container labs that can be loaded onto C-130 cargo planes or similar air transport and airlifted to remote locations.  Any company, institution or government agency that requires a laboratory  that is rapidly deployable would find this an ideal platform. In some national and international operations, airlifting the laboratory onto cargo transport aircraft is the most robust approach. GF Environmental Labs has developed several approaches that meet the rigorous demands of a laboratory airlift.


Fully functioning analytical and testing labs at the ready for airlifting to the incident location.

Our Air-Transportable Mobile Labs are complete functioning units and include on-board generators, HVAC systems and the primary containment equipment. These units feature slide-outs to maximize lab space once in place. They can also be set up to serve the home base when not deployed providing surge capacity or for use in training programs.

  • Our Mid-size Truck Labs are designed to maximize available space while providing all essential analytical and testing equipment. These rugged units meet the dimensional and weight requirements for air transport.


  • Our Mobile Container Labs offer a stand-up lab interior constructed within a shipping container.  These units feature retractable wheels that allow the complete frame of the trailer to mount securely to the deck of the aircraft. The retractable wheels allow for loading and unloading without additional ramp-handling equipment.  Our 20 foot (6M) Mobile Container Lab is ideal if other modalities of international transport will be routinely required (after initial delivery by GF Environmental Labs), namely containerized transport by sea, rail and truck. Once deployed, these units can easily be pulled as a trailer locally or for re-deployment, overland, to other sites.
