Webinar: Standards and Guidelines for Biosafety Laboratories

Standards and Guidelines for Biosafety Laboratories

In Webinare > english

Among the many standards and guidelines for biosafety laboratories, a few are internationally known and applicable to many settings and projects. We'll present an overview of the most commonly used standards and guidelines, especially for the operation of biosafety laboratories and laboratory building projects in countries without a comprehensive legal and normative framework. In addition, we plan on highlighting the following key aspects: requirements on tightness and requirements on redundancy.

We cordially invite everyone to join the various opportunities for open discussion. Active participation is possible (1) via chat, of course, (2) via microphone and (3) via video. Just indicate in the chat you might have some statement(s) or question(s), so we're able to activate you for mic and/or video.

Notice: There will be no recording of this event.
