Decile strategy to create a biocontainment ecosystem at an germ laboratory


Salman S Ahmed*

Ain Shams University's (ASU) Faculty of Medicine's Microbiology Research Laboratory (MRL) is a biosafety research facility that is situated on the university's main campus in Cairo. Between October 2019 and January 2020, a number of initiatives were carried out with the aim of enhancing the department's biosafety capabilities. These initiatives included raising awareness and educating laboratory staff, including those in non-health professions, about standard biosafety practises and procedures. Three levels of biosafety expertise were assigned to MRL employees: tier (1): no or little knowledge; tier (2): basic knowledge; and tier (3): satisfactory understanding. Their job responsibilities were taken into consideration when designing tier-based activities. Results: 44 chosen laboratory employees were trained in biosafety procedures: 13 made up of tiers 1, 2, and 3, and 12 were from tier 1. tier (3). (3). Regular follow-ups allowed for the evaluation of how the implemented training plan affected the behaviours and expertise of every member of the laboratory staff. Health-related professionals now have 60% more knowledge overall. Additionally, the International Federation of Biosafety Association has certified 6 employees in biosafety (IFBSA). In conclusion, creating a biosafety culture inside microbiology research labs is essential to safe research procedures. Research advancement will be made possible without compromising environmental or public health safety by creating local, state, and federal biosafety legislation and policies(Avni R et al ., 2017).
