BSL-3 laboratories are achieved through the addition of facility features and equipment designed for containment of aerosols to a foundation of sound lab safety practices.


All our biosafety laboratories are designed in accordance with WHO Biosafety guidelines.

The GLSI 40FT BSL3 Lab is available in either static or trailer based options on each model. The trailer based mobile laboratories are well suited to roaming and providing on site processing when hooked up to a tractor. GLSI are also able to include a tractor unit if required as part of the project. The static laboratory is designed to be positioned in a permanent location away of any existing property. 

Each laboratory  can be shipped by sea to any destination from our central manufacturing base. The mobile laboratory is CSC re-certified for transport after the build is completed.

A service and maintenance package can be included in the unit providing a 5 year program which involves an annual inspection, service of utilties and equipment and any equipment calibration that is required. All spare parts and replacement consumables are provided. Having GLSI manage this provides continued operation of the laboratory without disruption.

By providing a turn key solution all the stress is removed and we will be on call to manage all aspects of your ongoing laboratory programme.
