DESCRIPTION

BS EN 12128:1998


This standard BS EN 12128:1998 Biotechnology. Laboratories for research, development and analysis. Containment levels of microbiology laboratories, areas of risk, localities and physical safety requirements is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 07.080 Biology. Botany. Zoology
  • 07.100.01 Microbiology in general

This European Standard specifies minimum physical requirements for biological safety for laboratories at four reference physical containment levels which are appropriate for handling micro-organisms of different risk groups.

This European Standard primarily addresses the containment of micro-organisms which can present a risk to human health.

It applies to microbiology laboratories where the handling of micro-organisms in bacteriology, mycology, virology, parasitology and/or genetic modification is carried out.

NOTE Some aspects can also be applicable to laboratories specializing in disciplines other than microbiology which deal with specimens or other material not intended for cultivation but which may contain micro-organisms.

The requirements given in this European Standard are to minimize risks that may result from handling micro-organisms or materials which contain them. They are applicable to premises where there is an intention to manipulate or propagate micro-organisms of known or unknown identity.
