General Guidelines for Experimenting with HIV

ABSTRACT

 

Performing experiments using human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)‐infected materials represents a potential biological hazard for the investigator. An intensive training program for laboratory personnel must always precede the actual execution of research involving manipulation of HIV. In addition, appropriate sterile tissue culture techniques are absolute prerequisites for producing meaningful experiments and for achieving safe working conditions. In most circumstances more than one investigator uses the same HIV research facility; therefore, careful training in biosafety is mandatory not only for self‐protection, but for the safety of other investigators as well. The first protocol in this unit establishes a general framework for working safely with HIV and the second describes the proper storage of HIV stocks and test supernatants.
