Abstract:
This program describes some of the principal building characteristics and devices used in the design, construction and operation of laboratories studying infectious diseases. Descriptions, illustrations, and examples of how labs have used these concepts are presented. Emphasis is placed on the safety of lab workers and the health of the surrounding community. Using a standardized floor plan, the laboratory is classified into five areas: clean, lab research, animal research, laboratory support, and engineering. Definitions and explanations of primary and secondary barriers found within these areas are given. Specific attention is applied to safety cabinets used for housing contagious organisms. Suggestions for installing, operating, servicing, and decontaminating equipment and materials are presented.
