Arthropod Containment Level 3 (ACL-3) Laboratory
The BRI's ACL-3 laboratory allows researchers to investigate interactions between infectious disease agents and insect vectors, for example, mosquitoes and culicoides midges. This specialized space for infected insect maintenance has controlled access, downdraft air curtains, and screening. The ACL-3 laboratory contains a 4-foot biosafety cabinet and specialized equipment to enable feeding, inoculation, and transmission studies.
