5. Décrire succinctement les travaux sur la défense biologique réalisés dans l’installation, y compris le(s) type(s) de micro-organismes(9) et/ou toxines étudiés, et résumer les études en plein air sur les aérosols biologiques.

The Diagnostic Laboratories of the Institute of Microbiology, which are part of the University Hospital of Lausanne, are the Regional Competence Center for the primary analysis of samples suspicious of a bioterror-related background. Due to its other diagnostic activities, it is able to cover the whole spectrum of microbiology, namely virology, bacteriology, mycology and parasitology. Bacteriology also includes mycobacteriology, for which the Institute of Microbiology acts as a regional center.

Moreover, in 2017, we obtained the necessary funds for the up-grade and the expansion of our BSL3 level laboratory in the Institute of Microbiology. The construction started in September 2018 and finished in March 2020. During this period all these activities were carried out in the research BSL3 laboratory of our Institute according to the good laboratories practices recommended.

The new BSL3 laboratory stand as the reference BSL3 laboratory of the hospital (CHUV) for the diagnosis and manipulation of BSL3 samples, strains, microorganisms that may be encountered in daily work as well as the samples of the environment for the regional laboratory network.
