Biosafety Level 3 Pathogen Research

The pathogen research platform is equipped with a high containment Biosafety level 3 Laboratory (BSL-3), which is a highly secure facility designed for the safe handling of pathogens that pose significant health risks. The laboratory features strict safety measures, specialised equipment, and trained personnel to prevent accidental exposure and protect public safety.

This facility is fully equipped for the isolation of highly infectious pathogens to study their replication, pathogenicity and transmission features. The inclusion of a high-content fully automated imaging platform allows functional screenings and drug discovery directly with the pathogen of interest. The platform is also equipped for the handling of in vivo models of infection for research and pre-clinical studies.

📍 The “BSL-3 user facility” is located at ICGEB laboratories in Area Science Park.
