El IISGS has two culture rooms. One of them is dedicated to working with Adeno-Associated Virus transfected cells. In addition, a P2 Laboratory (BSL-2) has been recently installed, equipped with biological safety cabinets, negative pressure system, airlock entry and other physical containment equipment, making it suitable for working with moderately hazardous agents associated with human diseases (i.e. pathogenic or infectious organisms).
