SIB Insectary Laboratory

The School of Integrated Biology  Insectary 

The QIC3 Insectary involved the construction of a QC3 and QC2 Insectary for Professor Scott O’Neill to further his research into Dengue Fever.

This laboratory is one of only few QC3 facilities in SEQ and as such is a highly specialised facility with the containment of research mosquitoes being the highest priority.

The layout for the laboratory was based around the need to create three large constant temperature rooms which are set up to recreate North Queensland temperatures and to simulate dawn and dusk conditions.

A single research lab supports these CT rooms.
