Aerobiology

The heart of the ABSL-3 is a centralized aerobiology suite that contains a 10-foot stainless steel negative-pressure Class III hoodline. A unique feature of the BRL’s aerobiology suite is the mobile glove box cart that allows test materials to be moved in and out of the hoodline and into the adjoining animal rooms without going through the hallway or being exposed to the outside environment. The aerobiology suite is equipped with Biaera Technologies’ aerosol generator unit for nose-only, whole-body, and head-only delivery of either a biological agent or a test compound to multiple species.
