New biosecurity facility launched
CSIRO’s new Collaborative Biosecurity Research Facility (ACBRF) has been opened at the Australian Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL) in Geelong.
The Centre, claimed to be the most advanced of its type in the world, was built with a contribution of $8.5 million in Federal funding, through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy.
The ACBRF is located within AAHL’s high containment facility and incorporates a linked Australian Microscopy and Microanalysis Research Facility.
AAHL has developed a significant international reputation as one of the world’s finest animal bioscience research laboratories and is the most sophisticated laboratory in the world for the safe handling and containment of infectious micro-organisms.
