Sentinel Labs

The frontline clinical microbiology laboratories are known as “sentinel laboratories." The sentinel laboratories play a key role in the nation’s preparedness efforts. These laboratories perform the initial screening of clinical specimens for potential pathogens (rule-out) and refer specimens or isolates to a state or local public health laboratory at the reference level of the LRN. There are two kinds of sentinel laboratories: advanced and basic. Classification depends on their biological safety level and analytical capability.
