BSL-4 builds upon the containment requirements of BSL-3
and is the highest level of biological safety.
The TNO Triskelion facility was recently upgraded to BSL-3
level and accredited by Public Health England (PHE), so that all class 3 viruses and bacteria deadly to humans - from HIV to tuberculosis, from avian influenza to SARS - can be studied in conformity with Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) if required.
BSL-4 laboratory orientation training assumes that the person has already mastered all procedures for safe and secure handling of infectious agents at the BSL-2 and ideally BSL-3
A major proliferation of high-containment BSL-3
and BSL-4 labs is taking place in the United States, according to the literature, federal agency officials, and experts.
The Ukraine BSL-3
laboratory is the first to be commissioned in the Former Soviet Union under the Nunn-Lugar Global Cooperative Threat Reduction Program.
Maybe Washington, DC, the city has no facilities (I don't know that they don't nor do I know what the universities have), but I can assure you that the Washington, DC, area has fully operational containment facilities operating at BSL-3
Determining what work or projects require BSL-3
The existing building utilities will be utilized to support the WSVL BSL-3
CUH2A architects, engineers and planners specialize in science and technology projects and have designed over 50 high-containment BSL-3
and BSL-4 facilities to handle the most lethal pathogens.
is for those that lead to serious and possibly lethal infections like anthrax, BSL-2 is for medium-risk agents.
This document also includes cautionary notes related to recent safety concerns regarding BSL-3
and BSL-4 agents that have been identified as either potential biologic threats (e.
With this new BSL-3
laboratory, Nigeria and neighboring countries can provide an accurate diagnosis of TB using simple, improved microscopy techniques.
