Figure 2. Training and testing capacity building for Laboratory Response Networks in South Korea. Training and expanded testing capability are synergistic. Total number trained indicates the number of laboratory personnel from the Brian Allgood Army Community Hospital, US Army Yongsan Garrison, and from the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention facility trained on either rapid diagnostics or confirmatory conventional microbiology. Total number of agents in testing repertoire indicates the biological threat agent testing capability when Laboratory Research Network procedures, as determined by proficiency testing, are used.
