ABSA Risk Group Database App

The American Biological Safety Association (ABSA) International Risk Group Database app is available for Apple and Android devices. The app will allow users to access the ABSA Risk Group Database on their mobile devices when connected to the internet.

The ABSA Risk Group Database consists of international risk group classifications for Bacteria, Viruses, Fungi, and Parasites. In many countries, including the United States, infectious agents are categorized in risk groups based on their relative risk. Depending on the country and/or organization, this classification system might take the following factors into consideration: pathogenicity of the organism; mode of transmission and host range; availability of effective preventive measures (e.g., vaccines); availability of effective treatment (e.g., antibiotics); and other factors.

iPhone and iPad Instructions:
You can download the Risk Group Database app in the Apple App Store by searching for “Risk Group Database app.”

Android Instructions:

You can download the Risk Group Database app in the Google Play Store by searching for “Risk Group Database.”

The app only works when your device is connected to the Internet.
