BSL 2 Laboratory

BSL 2 Laboratory

As of January 1st 2017, UUBF is responsible for the accounting of the virus room at Barriären.

An hourly rate is charged for usage of the BSL 2 laboratory. The hourly cost is determined retroactively on a monthly basis by dividing the total rental cost UUBF pays for the facility with the total hours the facility was used during that month. An accounting fee of 10% will be added to the total cost. The utilized time for external customers will be doubled.

Access is only granted after successfully completing Uppsala University's course for working with infectious substances and GMM as well as UUBF’s introductory course for the facility.
