As of January 14, 2020, the Wyoming Public Health Laboratory’s (WPHL) Biosafety Level 3 (BSL-3) laboratory is experiencing a structural integrity failure and is currently decommissioned. It is unclear how long our BSL-3 will be out of service. The BSL-3 laboratory houses both the Preparedness Laboratory, which functions as the Laboratory Response Network Laboratory for the state of Wyoming, and the Mycobacteriology Laboratory (culture testing only), which tests for tuberculosis.
NOTE: IGRA-QFT testing is still offered and is not affected by this decommissioning.
The WPHL has taken action to divert all BSL-3 testing to appropriate locations. We ask that if you are submitting any of these tests, you contact the WPHL for instructions.
