Biological Use Authorization (BUA) Application

  • BSL 1, ABSL 1 and NIH-Exempt

    • Reviewed and approved by BSO

  • BSL 2 or 3, ABSL 2 or 3 and NIH- Non-exempt

    • Reviewed and approved by IBC

      Currently, no facilities at SDSU meet the minimum criteria for BSL 4; thus this type of work is prohibited.

Submission of New BUA

  • New infectious agents

  • New cell lines

  • New vector system

  • Enhanced replication or infectivity

  • Expression of toxic products

  • Partial genomes increased to more than two-thirds of whole genome

  • New or altered procedures that pose increased risk (e.g., aerosol or other type of exposure)

  • Work with non-human systems being changed into work with human system


Sdsu biosafety approval

SDSU Biosafety Approval

Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC)

  • Protocol Review

  • Biological Use Authorization (BUA) with respect to containment level (biosafety level)

  • Training

  • Inspection
