  • Description:
    These sampling procedures were prepared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide standardized methods for industrial hygienists, or other trained samplers under the direction of sampling experts, to use when sampling for Bacillus anthracis (B. anthracis) spores. These procedures supersede previous CDC procedures for collecting environmental samples for B. anthracis, including Comprehensive Procedures for Collecting Environmental Samples for Culturing Bacillus anthracis, which were developed during the 2001 anthrax terrorist events. As stated in that guidance, CDC planned to update the guidance as new information becomes available. In particular, one major change is the recent efforts by CDC to validate methods for the laboratory processing and analysis of B. anthracis spores.
