Life Sciences Park Malta

Laboratory space within €38m science campus


ACT is securing a newly-opened laboratory complex at a healthcare science park funded in part by the European Union.
Life Sciences Park Malta provides fully-equipped or shell-form facilities for companies requiring an interim space to conduct experiments.
Security is stringent and ACT was selected to provide wide-ranging access control at the 11,000 m² site across a hundred doors covering laboratories, offices, lecture theatres, meeting rooms and communal areas.

The building is using ACTpro MIFARE DESFire EV1 1030 contactless smart card readers which allow exceptional levels of encryption both at the door and card. The door controllers are the ACTpro 4200 model and the installation is operating from ACTenterprise control software which is able to provide the detailed reporting needed in a stringently health and safety-conformant environment.


  • additional encryption levels
  • ongoing reconfiguration to suit flexible space
  • over 100 doors secured


Any science institution whose employees have hierarchical duties will benefit from the role-based approach of ACTenterprise. Administrators, security staff and laboratory scientists all have specific functionality available to them according to their particular needs with the interface giving the look and feel of a web browser experience. The flexibility of ACTenterprise is invaluable at a site that is reconfigured on a regular basis.

The park is a €38m facility for companies operating in biology and bioethics. It is located near newly-built hospital and university projects in the town of San Ġwann in the centre of Malta.

ACT has worked with its local installation partner, Mediterranean Protection Solutions (MPS), with whom it has also secured harbours on the island of Malta.
