On June 29, Qingdao Science and Technology Bureau revealed that, with the approval of Ministry of Science and Technology, Yebio Bioengineering Co., Ltd. of Qingdao as the supporting unit constructs "Qingdao Yebio High-grade Pathogen Biosafety Level 3 Laboratory (ABSL-3, BSL-3)". The laboratory is the first biosafety level 3 laboratory built by enterprise, it will become the largest laboratory of its kind with the widest variety of experiments in Shandong province.
Biosafety level 3 laboratory, commonly known as "P3 laboratory", is the existing highest level of the biosafety laboratory in Shandong Province, which is not only a necessary scientific experimental base to carry out research on highly pathogenic pathogens, but also a major foundation support platform to develop the biopharmaceutical industry. Qingdao Yebio Biosecurity Level 3 Laboratory includes functional parts such as cell-level laboratories and laboratories for large and medium-sized animals and small animals, which can be used for pathogen isolation, testing experiments for prevention and control studies on diseases such as African swine fever and avian influenza. It is reported that the total investment of the project is 160 million yuan, and the construction area is 8,000 square meters. Among them, the biosafety core area alone covers an area of 1,050 square meters, larger than the total area of other three P3 laboratories in Shandong. In the future, the laboratory will serve as a regional high-level biosafety experimental platform shared by the province, providing a stronger research and development base for the regional biopharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, and improving the research and development and transformation efficiency prevention and control technologies of major and emerging epidemic disease in the province and even in the country.
Yebio Bioengineering Co., Ltd. of Qingdao is a producer from China with the most complete varieties of poultry vaccine and the strongest technical strength. Its sales amount has retained first for 10 consecutive years in the industry, with the sole state key laboratory supported by enterprise in the veterinary biologics industry - "State Key Laboratory of Animal Genetic Engineering Vaccine".
