SUMF is biosafety level 3 (BSL-3) facility for the containment malaria (P3**). It one of few facilities in Europe where it is possible to propagate mosquito vectors and also experimentally infect them with parasites. The facility consists of two closely located areas; an insectary for infected and non-infected mosquitoes, and a laboratory for culturing human asexual forms and the gametocyte forms infecting mosquitoes. In addition a laboratory for single cell microscopy has recently been added within the the Imaging Facility at SU (IFSU).
