About Us

Assisting Sentinel Laboratories

The Oregon State Public Health Laboratory (OSPHL) Laboratory Response Network (LRN) for Public Health Preparedness program assists sentinel laboratories by providing training and support in specimen collection, storage and shipment, evidence-control measures and recognition of chemical and biological terrorism agents.

The definition of a sentinel laboratory and sentinel laboratory protocols can be found on the American Society for Microbiology website.

Oregon LRN team members have many years of experience in the microbiological and chemical sciences, laboratory management and safety, the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA), the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), infectious and hazardous materials handling, information technology and data management, and college-level teaching.

The Laboratory Response Network is part of the Oregon State Public Health Laboratory. View the complete OSPHL staff directory or search the Public Health Program Directory to see all programs in the Oregon Public Health Division.
