Clinical laboratory preparedness and response guide
  • Description:
    DATE: Version 1.1: Revision date: 11/16/2016 Hospital and clinical laboratories are the first line of defense against biothreat agent infections and emerging infectious diseases. These laboratories will likely be the first to see clinical specimens from patients who have been exposed to intentional biothreat agent releases, naturally occurring biothreat agents or emerging infectious diseases. Their quick recognition and communication of these suspect agents is the key to rapid identification and response. This guide was developed to assist laboratories by providing guidance on the responsibilities and practices that are recommended when dealing with biothreat agents. In it you will find the tools and standards necessary to recognize if your laboratory has received a patient specimen containing a biothreat agent and how to handle it. This guide also covers basic laboratory biosafety, packaging and shipping, regulations that impact LRN Sentinel Laboratories and much more.
