Chem/Bio Isolation Laboratories

These laboratories are physically-isolated and individually-accessed spaces that are connected to the aquatics laboratory water supplies but they have separate airspace containment and aquatic discharge. These labs enable research using organisms, materials, or equipment that require additional levels of protection (e.g. invasive species).
