Biosafety Guidelines

CDC's MMWR Supplements, Vol. 61, Guidelines for Safe Work Practices in Human and Animal Medical Diagnostic Laboratories: Recommendations of a CDC-convened, Biosafety Blue Ribbon Panel
Prevention of injuries and occupational-related infections in U.S. laboratories is a major concern. A previous publication presented biosafety guidelines for laboratories; however, it did not address safety in diagnostic labs in human and animal medicine. In 2008, CDC convened a Blue Ribbon Panel to review safety issues in diagnostic labs. This supplement presents the guidelines developed by this group of experts.
