Welcome to Biosafety Level-3 Laboratory

 

AIIMS is a premier Medical Research Center in the country with a mandate to provide quality patient care services and perform quality research to meet the public health challenges. With rapidly evolving infectious disease landscape in the country, and emergence of MDR and XDR strains of bacteria like M. tuberculosis, there is an acute need to have a Biosafety containment facility (BSL-3) on campus to cater to research and patient care (diagnostics) requirements.

The upcoming BSL-3 facility is designed to fulfill this unmet need and to provide a safe work environment to the staff,faculty, researchers /students to carry out quality research and diagnostics work on the extremely contagious bacteria and viruses.
