Due to the Software User Group Conference, there may be a slight delay on general support requests. For urgent matters, please add "Urgent" to the ticket subject and we will prioritize those requests first.
The Dana-Farber Biocontainment Core Facility supports researchers whose experiments require a Biosafety Level 2+ (BL2+) containment level. The Biocontainment core adheres to Biosafety Level 3 (BL3) practices. Protective apparel, equipment, and other materials are provided by the core.
Two core facilities are available - one is located at the Jimmy Fund building at Dana Farber; the second at The Center for Life Science, 3 Blackfan Circle. Authorized core users may access both facilities.
Use of the facility is limited to researchers who receive training in BL3 procedures, and comply with authorized user requirements.
Training is provided by the Biosafety Officer, Core Manager, and authorized users.
If you would like to gain access to the Biocontainment Core, please login and open the tab labeled "Apply for BL3 Access" and click on "Initiate Request".
