BSL-3 Facility

Biosafety Level - 3 (BSL-3) Facility

BSL-3 facility at University of Hyderabad for research on pathogens:

  1. Brucella melitensis, Brucella abortus
  2. Pathogenic Mycobacteria

BSL - 3 Main Lab

  1. Separated from areas that are open to unrestricted traffic flow within the building with limited access.
  2. Maintained at -55pa.
  3. The air is discharged through HEPA filters which are capable of filtering 0.3 micron air-borne particles with an efficiency of 99.97%.
  4. The biohazard waste generated from the lab is directly sent to the autoclave via a different pass box provided.

Animal BSL - 3 Lab

  1. The ABSL-3 is equipped with “Individually ventilated cages” (IVC) with virus filtration efficiency ≥99.999987% and bacteria filtration efficiency ≥99.9999937%.
  2. Also ensures optimal gas exchange as well as protection also during procedures or in case of power failure.
  3. ABSL-3 lab is maintained at -52pa.
  4. ABSL-3 lab also has a challenge room or dissection room for the challenge studies. Each room in the ABSL-3 lab is connected by pass box for the passage of the experimental samples.

Pre-culture Room

Both BSL-3 main lab and ABSL-3 lab is connected by pass box for the passage of the experimental samples.

Well equipped decontamination facility.
