THE FIRST MOBILE BIOLOGICAL FIELD LABORATORY FOR THE STUDY OF INFECTIOUS DISEASES AT THE HUMAN/ANIMAL INTERFACE BSL3
The organic mobile field laboratory is an absolute innovation in the international fight against infectious diseases of animal origin and an innovative tool in the prevention of global health crises. Ideal for situations of emergency, it can provide technical assistance in the healthcare field, in different areas of risk. The structure as a whole is constituted by a shelter expandable from one to three volumes, compact configuration for transportation but much wider, in operation of 27 m2 usable. The laboratory is equipped with the latest technology for sampling and analysis of biomolecular diagnostic virology; in addition, the high level of biosafety laboratory can meet the modern criteria for epidemiological surveillance and protect against several other infectious diseases. The Laboratory is completed by two other containers that constitute an independent module for sampling and analysis of autopsy and include mobile services and technical and logistical support. In a functional structure, the entire system can operate 7-8 people simultaneously.
