Biosafety Laboratory

Biosafety Core
The Biosafety Core facility provides a wide variety of state-of-the-art resources.

The WMed Center for Immunobiology Biosafety Laboratory is a shared dedicated space to perform investigative techniques requiring an elevated level of containment. Residing in a separate room under negative pressure, the  Biosafety Laboratory was built to BSL2 specifications. Researchers are required to undergo specific training and certification prior to obtaining access to this Laboratory. Personal protective equipment (PPE) is provided.
