ICGEB Core Facility for Pathogenic Virus Manipulation

The Biosafety Level 3 (BL3) Laboratory at the ICGEB Trieste Component was designed in accordance with guidelines of the Italian Ministry of Health. This facility has special engineering and containment features that allow investigators to work safely with known or possible human pathogens classified at level 3 such as the human immunodeficiency virus.

Prior to using the BL3 laboratory, individuals are trained in the correct and safe use of the facility. A laboratory supervisor monitors the day-to-day operation to insure that all workers are following BL3 guidelines and directly instructs individuals in correct safety procedures prior to the start of their experiments in the BL3 laboratory and is available to answer questions should they arise. Experimental protocols are reviewed to insure maximum safety of all planned experiments.
