ACDP contains facilities enabling work on infected livestock at Physical Containment level 4 (PC4). This capability further strengthens our ability to protect Australia's animal and people from disease outbreaks.

ACDP is a high-containment laboratory with a Large Animal Facility able to operate at Physical Containment levels 3 and 4 (PC3 and PC4).

Though nearly all our diagnostics and research is performed using cell and tissue culture, there are instances where live animals are the only option. An example of when animals may be used in research would be in the final tests of the efficacy of a new vaccine.

Animal welfare

CSIRO and ACDP take the welfare of animals extremely seriously and their enrichment while in our care is not only a priority but also an area of great pride.
