BSL-3 are for exotic agents that poses a serious or even lethal risk to researchers!
BSL-2 labs pose a moderate hazard to researchers – certain tissue cultures like hepatitis are pathogenic and infectious.
BSL-1 is the lowest of the four BSLs: biological materials pose little to no threat of infection for researchers
BSL has four levels – each level has specific controls for containment and safety practices based on the biological agents present.
