All our biosafety laboratories are designed in accordance with WHO Biosafety guidelines. Download a copy of the guidelines.

The GLSI 20FT BSL3 Lab is available in either static or trailer based with extended options on each model. 

The use of mobile laboratories plays a vital role in as they can be mobilised quickly to the incident site. The internal fit out is completely customised to meet the workflow and processes needed. The solution is cost effective and provides a safe external laboratory where all contaminants can be isolated.

Mobile labs have been used in crisis events such as Ebola and COVID-19 as well as specialist environmental field studies. These laboratories are an essential tool in scientific response.
