Biocontainment facilities are going to be a big issue worldwide in 2009-2010. Accelerated research and vaccine development to address new varieties of highly infectious pathogens will require more containment facility capacity. There will also be more vigorous regulatory oversight for safe and secure biocontainment protocols and operations. And finally, as the high costs of operating biocontainment facilities become clear, institutions will be reexamining facility operating assumptions and aggressively looking for cost-reduction opportunities.

At this conference you’ll learn how organizations are achieving the new objectives and standards for capacity, safety, security, and cost-control with:

• Successful commissioning, validation, and startup strategies
• Proactive plans for increased regulatory oversight for safety & security
• Economical operations with animals – Level 3 and 4. ABSL & BSL-Ag
• Reduced energy use
• More informed decisions on design, construction, and space-upgrades
• New solutions for HVAC, controls, and mechanical systems
• Successful training and retention programs for support staff
• New models for facility operations and maintenance

Attend the 8th Annual International Conference on Biocontainment Facilities in Las Vegas this spring along with your program team to make sure you have the right plan, the right capacity, and the right operational parameters…all at the right cost.

PLUS! You have the opportunity to tour the new $113 million LEED certified Science and Engineering Building (SEB) at UNLV.
