BSL-2 laboratories are used to study moderate-risk infectious agents or toxins that pose a risk if accidentally inhaled, swallowed, or exposed to the skin.


Design requirements for BSL-2 laboratories include hand washing sinks, eye washing stations in case of accidents, and doors that close automatically and lock. BSL-2 labs must also have access to equipment that can decontaminate laboratory waste such as an autoclave, all of which GLSI can provide.

The GLSI 20FT BSL2 Lab is available in either static or trailer based with extended options on each model. 

As with all projects of this kind the logistical element is critical to ensure the laboratory is functional in the field. Each of our laboratories requires movement to its desired location. This is what gives its unique purpose as it can be in situ where real-time processing can take place. We provide a full logistic service ensuring every unit is in place where it can be commissioned onsite to ensure every laboratory is fully operational.
