Testing and Training
The Preparedness Lab offers confirmatory testing for agents of bioterrorism and emerging infectious diseases. To help with the rule-out process, the following materials are provided: characterization bench cards, Safety Data Sheets, and training courses.
Confirmatory tests for clinical specimens are ordered using the Lab Web Portal. See tests under the “Preparedness Laboratory/Biothreat Agent” section.
During a Chemical Terrorism event, the Preparedness Lab provides local support with sample logistics, training, and outreach.
