NSERL and BSB are secure research facilities that require card access to enter various corridors and labs. Any new personnel must go through certain steps to obtain access and the below is a great tool to review to make sure all steps are completed.

BSB & NSERL Access

All BSB and NSERL lab personnel will need to complete BioRaft training in order to gain access to the building. If you are a lab personnel requesting access, you must contact the lab owner (PI) to add you to their lab in BioRaft. Once you complete your designated training, you will be granted access to that lab space. For any questions regarding BioRaft and training, contact Shane Solis at ext. 4730.

All non-lab personnel (i.e. administrative staff, etc.) will need to submit access request through eCAT for further processing – be as specific as possible. Utilize the NSERL /BSB Building Access Guide to be as specific as possible regarding the areas you will need to access.

If you have any questions about access requests or issues, contact Shannon Gaspard at ext. 5783.

These access procedures do not apply to other department controlled areas, such as Cleanroom and Vivarium. For access to these areas, you must contact the department’s contacts, below.
