Rapid analysis of highly pathogenic agents, generally in environmental samples and in case of biological accidents (B events).
We are competent for the research of Bacillus anthracis in samples of various kinds (e.g. suspect powders), for the detection of potential bioterrorism agents (smallpox, plague, Francisella tularensis, Clostridium botulinum, Brucella spp.) or for the analysis of bird faeces in case of an avian influenza emergency.
The Regional Laboratory South (LR South) for biosafety is an integral part of GNI and acts as a regional antenna in the case of type B alarms to support the National Reference Centres, allowing the primary analysis and selective analysis of the most dangerous microorganisms to be decentralised.
