Biosecurity Research Institute

Schedule of Charges

The BRI is committed to the success of your research. The BRI research support team will work with you to evaluate your research needs, develop standard operating procedures for your work, obtain select agent approvals, and more. Routine support services are included; other added-fee services are available. 

BRI staff continue to do everything possible to support your research. However, at the present time and until further notice, due to nationwide shortages, we may not be able to provide some items of personal protective equipment including disposable N95 facemasks, coveralls, gloves and gowns. Some reusable PPE, such as PAPRs, are in high demand and availability may be limited. Principle investigators should discuss needs and availability with Biosafety staff (expand the section labeled, "Biosafety and regulatory support and training"). It may be necessary to organize research efforts to conserve stocks of PPE, disinfectants such as CaviCide, and other resources that we have on hand.

The following is a summary of biocontainment use fees for internal (K-State) users. For external cost per space per day, please contact Colleen Hackenberg at 785-532-1333 or by email at info@bri.ksu.edu.
