The Viral Biosafety level three facility (BSL-3) has been established in the Centre for Infectious Disease Research (CIDR) Building, IISc Campus, Bangalore for conducting research on BSL3 category viral pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2. It consists of one BSL3 lab for cell-based experiments and one infection-cum-necropsy room for animal experiments. There are appropriate change rooms, an autoclave room, and a plant room. This lab has special safety and engineering features for maintaining requisite negative pressure environment to ensure unidirectional airflow, and for ensuring safety of lab personnel. Go through the SOPs to understand the prerequisites for accessing the facility.
