Laboratory Response

The broad base of clinical laboratories in this country is an essential component of our nation’s public health and healthcare system and is an essential link in addressing biological and chemical terrorism. In 1999 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) initiated the concept of a Laboratory Response Network (LRN).  The LRN is a network of local, state, federal, and military laboratories across the United States and internationally which work together in an integrated and coordinated way for a rapid response to public health emergencies. The LRN concept of operations is based on a system of safety and proficiency.
