Cell culture labs

The IMRB has seven L2 platforms and one L3 cell culture platform spread over the Henri Mondor Hospital and the Faculty of Medicine of Créteil.


These type 2 confined laboratories comply with the recommendations issued by Inserm. These premises are separated from the circulation areas by an overpressure airlock which gives access to experimental boxes in depression. The air is treated by a system of HEPA filters on both the supply and return sides.


They are equipped with type II Microbiological Safety Stations (MSS) according to EN 12469.

L2 laboratories are therefore authorised to handle samples and cells of human origin and class 2 GMOs.

The L3 laboratory is intended for the handling of human specimens infected with category 3 pathogenic organisms. The L2/L3 are made available to the various research teams on the site, to any laboratory working in collaboration with one of these entities and also open to private companies.
