Format: Kindle Edition
This book is a welcome and essential source of diverse and instructive information for anyone involved in any aspect of involvement with biocontainment facilities; this whether working from a scientific, design, construction, facilities operation or maintenance perspective. It provides a complete first reference for the myriad and complex questions likely to come from designers, researchers, scientists, constructors or maintenance practitioners operating in this highly specialized field.

Over the past more than four years, I been intimately involved in the design building and commissioning of a completely new building which contains extensive BSL2 and BSL3 facilities. Our facilities team, in taking over responsibility now has to ensure that the facility operates safely and effectively and this reference source will provide an essential part of our toolkit. Given the knowledge and guidance herein, my only regret is that "Management Principles for Building and Operating Biocontainment Facilities' wasn't available to our project team five years ago!

The book is extremely well written as it touches upon many aspects of biocontainment facilities to include design, engineering, operations, training, risk assessment and other areas pivotal to successful and safe management and operation. Applied examples are provided throughout many of the chapters to increase relevance and utility. The Kindle format is easy to navigate and facilitates retrieval of the document. I would recommend this book to anyone contemplating construction or renovation of a containment facility, and especially to new users of a biocontainment facility.

I recently had an opportunity to read this ground-breaking book. In it, the editors have assembled an experienced crew of authors to discuss the most important aspects of planning, building and operating bio-containment facilities. They cover everything from planning and design to staffing and training. The lessons of years of experience are presented, with valuable information regarding typical operating budgets and maintenance costs. One of the most interesting sections for me, as a scientist who has spent the majority of his career working in a BSL-3 facility working with transgenic mice, human tissues, viral vectors and HIV, is the discussion of risk assessment and emergency response for high containment facilities. These chapters provided useful reminders regarding the importance of creating a safe work environment for BSL-3 employees to avoid potentially severe consequences.

I recommend this book to anyone currently using or planning to build a bio-containment facility.

Wide variety of topics, well presented, but not all are relevant for my project role. However I would recommend it to anyone going to work in this field as it gives a good 360 degrees introduction.
