Neisseria meningitidis is infrequently reported as a laboratory-acquired infection. Prompted by two cases in the United States in , we assessed this risk among laboratorians. We identified cases of meningococcal disease that were possibly acquired or suspected of being acquired in a laboratory by placing an information request on e-mail discussion groups of infectious disease, microbiology.

Laboratory workers are at risk of acquiring infections while at work. This chapter describes the history and epidemiology (including behavioral characteristics) of laboratory-acquired infections and describes the programs, procedures, provisions and practices, and requirements (including risk management) in place to help reduce their frequency and by: 1.

This chapter talks about laboratory biosafety and its goals that include prevention of laboratory-acquired infections in workers and accidental releases of live agents which can potentially endanger and have severe negative impact on humans, animals, and plants.

Laboratory safety involves all aspects of the laboratory cycle, starting from before microorganisms arrive in the facility and Cited by: 8. LABORATORY SAFETY PLAN INFECTION CONTROL IN THE CLINICAL LABORATORY PART 1.

Prevention of Occupationally Acquired Infections in the Lab 10/31/ Medical laboratory workers who handle tissue, body fluids, and other specimens from infected patients are at high risk for work-related exposures to infectious material.

Abstract. Laboratory-acquired infections due to a wide variety of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites have been described. Although the precise risk of infection after an exposure remains poorly defined, surveys of laboratory-acquired infections suggest that Brucella species, Shigella species, Salmonella species, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and Neisseria meningitidis are the most Cited by:   Brucellosis is one of the most common laboratory-acquired infections, mostly because aerosolization is a mechanism of transmission in this setting.

We report an exposure to Brucella melitensis that occurred in a large microbiology laboratory and describe the strategy chosen for antibiotic prophylaxis and serological follow-up of exposed workers.

Laboratory-acquired infections described in the literature from were analyzed according to agent, means of exposure, and type of laboratory where the work was conducted (research.

Prevention of laboratory acquired infections Many LAIs occur because labora-tory personnel do not appreciate the increased exposure risk associated with an incorrect or delayed identification of a highly infectious agent (e.g., Brucella spp. or F. tularensis) that often leads to performing aerosol-producing procedures outside of the BSC.

This book from Britain is a detailed treatise on the "History, Incidence, Causes and Prevention" of laboratory-acquired infections. The author, an adviser to the World Health Organization in the Special Programme on Safety Measures in Microbiology, has considerable experience in this area and presents the subject in a highly readable manner.
