The containment facility is currently undergoing CFIA review for AQC3 certification. In vitro and small scale operations are available.
On the first floor of the CDRF you will find containment labs for the study of aquatic pathogens and invasive species. We are currently undergoing final construction and the certification process for AQC3 level containment.
Our facility has two rooms housing holding tanks with adjoining necropsy rooms for disease challenge studies.
A dry lab is connected to the disease challenge / necropsy rooms and is fully equipped for cell or tissue culture studies. An additional dry lab is available as needed.
All water used in the containment zone is treated in our waste water treatment plant.
