Ebola virus efficacy testing


Ebola virus testing is performed only by Biosafety Level 4 laboratories (BSL-4), the highest biocontainment level labs which are reserved for the most hazardous infectious agents. Less than 15 such labs exist in the United States. The Texas Biomedical Research Lab is a BSL-4 lab located in San Antonio, Texas, where Xenex pulsed xenon UV light was tested against Ebola virus.
