Introduction to containment level 3 (biosafety level 3, BSL3) research laboratory, a hypothetical approach to identifying a potential bioterrorism agent that is classed as a hazard group three microorganism.

About This Simulation

This simulation introduces the concept of laboratory containment and presents a scenario where such a laboratory is required and the basic protocols utilized therein. Containment in this context refers to the requirements set out by various bodies that are required to work with hazardous pathogens. This simulation introduces a containment level 3 (biosafety level 3, BSL3) research laboratory and provides the user with a hypothetical approach to identifying a potential bioterrorism agent that is classed as a hazard group three microorganism.
