Contact Zach Blanchard in Biological Safety to reserve a spot on the class roster by submitting the student’s name, PID, email, Investigator name and whether B virus training is required.

General Information

Since the mid 1990s OSHA’s position has been that workers handling human cell cultures (primary or established) fall under the purview of the Bloodborne Pathogen (BBP) Standard unless the cells have been tested and proven to be free of bloodborne pathogens. (See OSHA’s website). Because it is difficult to have cells tested for all bloodborne pathogens and ensure that they are never contaminated with bloodborne pathogens during research, UNC has taken the position that work with ALL human cell lines (including established lines) fall under the requirements of the BBP standard.
