Use KI’s BSL3 for research on COVID-19

Karolinska Institutet has preparedness for research on the novel corona virus and other highly pathogenic organisms.

The BSL-3 laboratories at Karolinska Institutet consitute an important infrastructure investment enabling work on high pathogenic organisms. The BSL-3 facility is a safe and efficient technical platform where is possible to work with class 3 pathogens, both non-airborne and air-borne.

Work with the novel corona virus (SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19) is possible in the BSL-3 laboratories if you are considering applying for grants. We can also service private companies in need of BSL3 facilities.
