Honeywell Protective Clothing Awarded BSL-4 Suit Contract

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Procurement and Grants Office has announced intentions to award a sole source contract to Honeywell Protective Clothing, in Bagnols-sur-Ceze, France, to purchase Biosafety Level 4 (BSL-4) ventilated protective suits.

The acquisition supports the CDC’s Viral Special Pathogens Branch (VSPB) in its study of highly infectious viruses, many of which cause hemorrhagic manifestations in humans. Such health security threats include Ebolavirus, Marburgvirus, Lassa fever virus, Rift Valley fever virus, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus, other Arenavirus and Hantavirus species, and additional emerging viral species.

VSPB operates one of the world’s few BSL-4 laboratories and staff members are trained to respond to global disease outbreaks and provide assistance for disease detection and control measures.
