Containment level 3 laboratory- BSE

From:"sue hacker (IAH-C)"

Dear Histonetters,
Firstly thanks for all your replies, any more help and advice on cat 3 labs for TSE work most welcome. Just to clarify for some of our readers who have asked what BSE is, this is Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy - in layman's terms mad cow disease. It is a particular worry to us Histologists as it has led to new variant CJD, which is a particularly deadly disease. I know it is not encountered in the US so may have led to some confusion.
