Abstract

Bioscience research laboratories, biotechnology institutions, biomedical laboratories, and clinical laboratories are critical in the global fight against emerging and reemerging infectious diseases such as Avian Influenza, SARS, Nipah, Chikungunya, new variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease, Lyme borreliosis, epidemic meningitis, Hantavirus, HIV, West Nile, Rift Valley fever, multidrug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis, among many others. 1 Every day, bioscience institutions around the world advance humanity’s knowledge about infectious disease and develop new technologies to improve the state of public and agricultural health.
