General Biosafety Training Overview

***NEW!! The biosafety group has streamlined its training, and now covers all information (except for shipping biological materials) in one training module.***

This training course is required for anyone working with biological materials and listed as a member of a lab with an active IBC application. This course covers a general biosafety overview, including information on blood borne pathogens, recombinant DNA, biosafety cabinets, and ABSL-1/ABSL-2. If you are responsible for shipping biological materials, you will also be required to complete a separate training.


This training is available by logging into BioRAFT with your CU Identikey credentials.
