Biohazard levels

Biohazard levels, more commonly known as “biological safety levels” or “biosafety levels” are classifications of safety precautions which are needed to be applied in the clinical microbiology laboratory depending on specific organisms handled in every laboratory procedure. Developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), this principle provides a way for medical laboratory scientists and other lab personnel adequately identify and limit any biological hazards which will further decrease the risk in the laboratory. Aside from biosafety, biohazard levels are also indirectly used to support the principle of biosecurity, which is aimed at preventing the use of organisms as harmful biological agents.
