Agents of Bioterrorism: Sentinel Training for Clinical LaboratoriesAgents of Bioterrorism: Sentinel Training for Clinical LaboratoriesThis one-day, intermediate-level, hands-on workshop will provide an overview of the sentinel clinical laboratory’s role in the presumptive identification of the primary agents of bioterrorism. Laboratory exercises will demonstrate the culture, staining and biochemical characteristics of Bacillus, Burkholderia, Yersinia, Brucella, and Francisella species. The safety implications of handling suspect organisms in clinical isolates and culture and suspect toxins will be emphasized. Policies related to chain-of-custody specimens will be reviewed.2019-03-14T00:00:00Z2019-03-14T23:59:00Zhttps://www.aphl.org/116-18, http://www.aphl.org/116-18
