Description
 
The bioterrorist use of Bacillus anthracis in 2001 highlighted federal agencies' poor preparation to respond to its intentional release. In 2005, assessing federal agencies activities for detecting Bacillus anthracis in postal facilities, GAO reported that the test results of their sampling were largely negative. GAO found that the agencies had not used validated sampling methods and approaches that would have given a defined level of confidence for negative results. Consequently, GAO recommended several actions. This study, identifies the extent to which (1) DHSs actions have addressed GAOs recommendations regarding sampling; (2) the environmental sampling methods for B. anthracis spore detection in initial public health sampling and microbial forensic investigations have been validated; and (3) any challenges remain to completing validation. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
