Biological safety

Laboratory biosafety practices are based on the principle of containment of biological agents to prevent exposure to laboratory workers and the outside environment

Primary containment protects the laboratory workers and the immediate laboratory environment from exposure to biological agents.


Secondary containment protects the external laboratory environment from exposure to infectious agents.


The purpose of the containment is to reduce and eliminate the exposure to potentially hazardous agents of laboratory workers and the environment.


The combination of primary primary (PPE - Personal Protective Equipment), and secondary containments will reduce the exposure of the pathogens.
