Biosafety Icon BSL 3

Biosafety level 3 is applicable to any facility where work is performed with indigenous or exotic agents that may cause serious or potentially lethal disease through inhalation. Laboratory personnel must receive specific training in handling pathogenic, potentially lethal agents and must be supervised by scientists competent in handling infectious agents. ATCC determines the biosafety level of a material based on our risk assessment and as guided by the current edition of Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories (BMBL), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It is your responsibility to understand the hazards associated with the material per your organization’s policies and procedures as well as any other applicable regulations as enforced by your local or national agencies.

ATCC highly recommends that appropriate personal protective equipment is always used when handling vials. For cultures that require storage in liquid nitrogen, it is important to note that some vials may leak when submersed in liquid nitrogen and will slowly fill with liquid nitrogen. Upon thawing, the conversion of the liquid nitrogen back to its gas phase may result in the vial exploding or blowing off its cap with dangerous force creating flying debris. Unless necessary, ATCC recommends that these cultures be stored in the vapor phase of liquid nitrogen rather than submersed in liquid nitrogen.
