The Australian Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL) is a national centre of excellence in disease diagnosis, research and policy advice in animal health. AAHL is a major facility of CSIRO Livestock Industries. The facility plays a vital role in maintaining the health of Australia’s livestock, aquaculture species and wildlife.

AAHL opened in 1985 at a cost of over A$150 million, and is one of the most sophisticated laboratories in the world for the safe handling and containment of animal diseases.

Major diseases of livestock, aquaculture animals, and wildlife, are studied. AAHL includes a high-biocontainment facility, to safely fulfil its major role of diagnosing emergency animal disease outbreaks. Within the high biocontainment facility, AAHL contains modern animal facilities that can house a range of animal species up to biosecurity level four (BSL4), the highest level available.
