Abstract:

The purpose of this template is to provide a model for laboratories to use for developing a bioterrorism (BT) preparedness plan. The components of this template can be used to develop a readiness plan to meet the needs of the institution. It is not meant to be all-inclusive. Rather, it is to serve as an aid in the process of developing a specific plan for each institution.
