NEW CCI BL2+ lab for Infectious Samples Processing

The CCI recently opened a BL2+ lab on BWH’s main campus to process infectious samples, including COVID+ samples. This lab has 2 biosafety cabinets, centrifuges with sealed rotors, and an incubator. The equipment will allow investigators to study biological sampling of blood, nasal and lower respiratory secretions in order to identify immunophenotypic and genomic features. The lab follows all OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Standards as well as staff process samples wearing the appropriate PPE.
