4.1 Biocontainment

Within epidemiology, steps must be taken toward controlling the spread of infectious diseases and their prevention. Various tools and strategies within microbiology are used to control the spread of infectious diseases.

Biocontainment refers to the containment of pathogenic materials with strict, specific guidelines to prevent the spread of any disease or harmful effects. This means that all hospitals, clinical laboratories, and various medical facilities need to have preventive measures against the possibility of infectious spread due to pathogenic material being present.

Part of biocontainment means understanding these pathogens and how they can spread. These concepts specifically call for physical and chemical isolation of pathogens within laboratory settings and preventive measures taken against any possible accidental pathogen spread.
