Safeguard Research Facilities and Personnel to Meet the Requirements of ABSL 3
Critical research involving pathogens or biological toxins have the “potential to pose a severe threat to public health and safety,” according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
For such research programs to be successful and safe they must be supported by specially trained staff, specialized equipment, and well-developed standard operating procedures.
This paper provides a blueprint for designing and operating research facilities to meet requirements for Animal Biosafety Level (ABSL) 3.
