Animal Safety

Animal Biosafety Levels (ABSLs) refer to the use of rDNA or biohazardous agents in animals. All ABSLs are associated with detailed cage labeling requirements, biohazard carcass disposal practices, and personnel training. Note that certain ABSLs require specific housing designations. The Animal Housing and Biosafety Flow Chart contains specific information on ABSL housing.
