Brucella spp.

Brucella spp.

This course provides clinical laboratory scientists with information about the laboratory identification of Brucella spp. species. The goal is to assist clinical laboratory scientists in better recognizing potential biothreat agents they may encounter during routine laboratory work-ups of sputum, blood and aspirate/biopsy specimens. Laboratory managers may consider using this course to:

  • Assess staff competency in performing laboratory procedures accurately
  • Determine if staff are referring specimens for test confirmations correctly

At the conclusion of this eLearning, you will be able to:

  • Describe laboratory tests for identification of Brucella spp.
  • Describe how to rule out or refer isolates for Brucella spp. using standardized laboratory protocols
  • Discuss the role of the sentinel laboratory in bioterrorism response
