For biothreat and emerging infectious disease agents the LRN Sentinel Level Laboratory Testing Protocols are the basis for testing and providing guidance for the management, reporting, and complying with the Select Agent Rule. The focus of this program is to provide the clinical microbiologist with an in-depth review of the major changes in the LRN protocols, to understand the “rule out” versus “refer” principle, shipping and packaging, the value of training opportunities such as the LPX Survey program and the importance of maintaining the highest level of personal and institutional safety.
At the conclusion of this program, the participant will be able to:
- Identify “key” revisions of each LRN Sentinel Level Protocol.
- Apply the respective procedures in meeting the responsibility of “rule out or refer.”
- Discuss the laboratory’s responsibility in fulfilling specific components of the Select Agent Rule program and communicating with their designated Reference Laboratory.
