Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) would afford the immediate availability of biosafety level 4 laboratories (designed for the study of pathogens requiring maximum biological containment for laboratory safety) and facilitate rapid diagnosis of diseases due to pathogens posing extraordinary laboratory safety hazards.
Maximum biological containment is designed to prevent transmission of highly hazardous pathogens and is accomplished in two steps.
Contract notice: Preventive, corrective, conductive and modifying maintenance of the facilities and systems that serve the level 3 laboratory, biological containment
(p3) and other 2 biocontainment laboratories of the national microbiology center, in the campus of the health institute Carlos III .
A Our biological containment
laboratories were upgraded last year to BSL3+ enhanced status to support both our work with highly pathogenic organisms, including avian flu, and a contract awarded to the company to develop several testing panels of flu and related organisms for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The ECA wishes to acquire a clinical PET-CT system dedicated to preclinical imaging and the associated system for performing imaging in subjects infected by pathogenic classes 2 and 3, while maintaining the isolation of the camera out biological containment
Its disease scientists, by way of specialized biological containment
facilities, provide diagnostic support and research results to public health departments utilizing dead wild birds as sentinels for detecting WNV.
