Plateforme NC3

The CHUM Research Centre's Biosafety level 3 (BSL3) core facility allows research teams to carry out studies on infectious diseases and safely handle certain biosafety level 3 pathogens.

Our facilities include eight cell culture rooms dedicated to different research programs. We also have a cytometry room for cell sorting.

Each room is equipped with two biological safety cabinets, incubators and work and storage spaces.

Our equipment and manipulation protocols comply with the requirements of the Public Health Agency of Canada and ensure user safety while preventing the spread of pathogens within the laboratories and the environment.
