Biosafety Level 3 Laboratory Design
This meeting will feature a presentation and discussion on Biosafety Laboratory Design.
The presentation will focus on considerations and differences for containment level design (from BSL2, BSL3 and BSL4). The focus will be on highlighting the various aspects of BSL3 design, including the various levels from Basic BSL3 labs to enhances BSL3E labs to high containment BSL3Ag Labs. BSL3 is the most challenging to generalize, as each lab features are determined via a risk assessment/analysis with regards to the agents and activities (research, diagnostics, testing & evaluation) that will take place within the lab. The final component of the presentation will highlight some emerging and design aspects to consider when designing a BSL3 lab and integrating the lab an overall building.
