Lab training boosts foot and mouth preparedness

Wednesday, 28 November, 2001

Australia's diagnostic capability to deal with any potential large-scale outbreak of foot and mouth disease is being increased, thanks to two training workshops.

Laboratory technicians from state veterinary laboratories are being trained over the next two weeks in the latest diagnostic techniques for the livestock disease, which does not occur in Australia, at CSIRO Livestock Industries' Australian Animal Health Laboratory.

The training program has been made possible as part of an injection of $500,000 from the federal government budget to enhance the nation's diagnostic capability.
