Burkinabe's National Biosafety Laboratory OpenedSeptember 11, 2019
Burkina Faso has moved a major step forward in biosafety development following the inauguration of the National Biosafety Laboratory on September 2, 2019 in Ouagadougou. The laboratory, hosted at the Agricultural, Environmental and Training Research Station (CREAF-K), was officially launched by the country's National Biosafety Authority (ANB) under the patronage of Minister of Higher Education, Scientific Research and Innovation Professor Alkassoum Maïga.
The facility, touted as among the highly equipped biosafety laboratories in the West African region, is expected to reinforce Burkinabe's leadership in biosafety. It has the capacity for microbiological, biochemical, and physico-molecular analyses.
