The SDL has a separate Biosecurity level 2 dry laboratory approved by OSU’s Biological Safety Officer (BSO) and IBC. The BSL 2 lab is suitable for work involving agents that pose moderate hazards to personnel and the environment. This room allows researchers to work with a broad spectrum of indigenous moderate-risk agents that are present in the community and associated with human disease of varying severity. The room is under negative pressure and is equipped with a Biosafety Cabinet (BSC) for primary containment of procedures with aerosol or high splash potential. There is a wash station in the room and appropriate decontamination procedures and personnel training procedures are in place. The AAHL has an on site autoclave to decontaminate biowaste or prepare laboratory equipment.
