CDC - Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories

Visibility: Open to anyone

    Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories (BMBL) quickly became the cornerstone of biosafety practice and policy in the United States upon first publication in 1984. Historically, the information in this publication  has been advisory is nature even though legislation and regulation, in some circumstances, have overtaken it and made compliance with the guidance provided mandatory. We wish to emphasize that the 5th edition of the BMBL remains an advisory document recommending best practices for the safe  conduct of work in biomedical and clinical laboratories from a biosafety perspective, and is not intended as a regulatory document though we  recognize that it will be used that way by some.
