Biosecurity Research Institute

Arthropod Containment Level 3 (ACL-3) Laboratory/Insectary

The BRI's ACL-3 insectary 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 insectary contains a 6-foot biosafety cabinet and specialized equipment to enable feeding, inoculation, and transmission studies.

If you are interested in conducting research at the BRI, contact the Director.
