Features of the HKURCEID - Staff and Operating Protocols

One of the most important aspects to the successful operation of a BSL-3+ facility is staff training and detailed operating procedures.

The University of Hong Kong's Research Centre for Emerging Infectious Diseases (HKURCEID) has a specially trained team (Figure 1), the Microbiology Emergency Response Team (MERT) responsible for the day to day operation of the facility and for the training of staff who operate in the facility.

Bio2ic worked with the MERT to prepare the HKURCEID Operating and Safety Manual which was then subject to approval by the University of Hong Kong.
