Since 1910, the virological research facility 'Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut', Federal Research Institute for Animal Health, has been situated in the Greifswalder Bodden on the island of Riems, and is now the headquarters of five locations throughout Germany. Founder and namesake Friedrich Loeffler, discovered in 1898 that the foot-and-mouth disease is not caused by bacteria, but by viruses. Hence his reputation as the man who discovered viruses. The research laboratories meet the highest safety standards and are located in an animal disease restricted area

At the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institute (FLI) scientists are researching highly infectious viruses and bacteria that can infect animals. Research is also being conducted on zoonoses that are transmitted between animals and humans. Therefore, the corresponding laboratory facilities must meet the highest security requirements, up to security level S4. Throughout Germany, there are only four laboratories that have an S4 classification as a research institution. Supplying employees with protective equipment is also part of the safety concept.

RFID & Wireless IoT Global spoke to Maik Neubauer, head of a working group in the department for experimental animal husbandry and biosafety at FLI, about protective clothing and automated cabinet systems in the laundry dispensing area.
