Laboratories that work with strains of bacteria that produce SSBA toxins are not captured by the SSBA designation as long as the SSBA toxin is not produced to levels above the trigger quantity Footnote 1. If work with strains of bacteria that produce SSBA toxins results in the production of quantities of SSBA toxins that exceed the SSBA toxin trigger quantities, the work would be subject to the SSBA designation.
