At the end of next week, from 3 to 5 of October, AEBioS, the Spanish Association of Biosafety will hold its 4th congress, this time in Salamanca. For more information you can access its website.
Viral Comments (40): Biosafety through risk assessments. More flexibility, for sure, but more dispersion aswell?
For almost three decades (the first edition of LBM, Laboratory Biosafety Manual of the World Health Organization, WHO, is from 1983) Biosafety has been implanted, stumbling in some cases, in different countries of different continents. Biosafety grouped and groups together a set of techniques and procedures that seek to control exposure to pathogens, protecting the laboratorial workforce, but also the community that surrounds them, in the face of involuntary or accidental releases.
Do you need a BSL3 facility to study a zoonosis or an OIE notifiable disease? A new call is open to fund your experiment in our center!
IRTA-CreSA is a member of the VetBioNet network, a Veterinary Biocontained facility Network for excellence in animal infectious disease research and experimentation.
Laboratories of high biocontainment (BSL3) and maximum biocontainment (BSL4) worldwide represent the highest levels of biological containment, offering great protection for the user, the sample and the environment.
This week, from April 27th to 28th, the Twentieth EBSA conference, the European Biosafety Association, will take place in Madrid.
Following a story recently published in El País about an occupational infection perhaps it is worth talking about the waste management process in a research centres like ours, and some derivatives.
The interest of society towards certain subjects fluctuates up and down, until the matter eventually leaves the scene. Even though Crimean-Congo news no longer appear on newspapers we will write a second post, and maybe last, for now, dedicated to this virus. A few ideas will be reviewed regarding the epidemiology, the potential distribution of the Crimean Congo hemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV onwards) in Spain and Catalonia, also about its pathogenesis and how it affects our health systems. A patchwork-post, if you like, not one with a linear style but brushstrokes to outline the global painting…or al least to give a quick hand of paint to the wall.
