Government Grant





This cooperative agreement is intended to enhance the capacity and capabilities of state human and animal food testing laboratories in support of an integrated food safety system. Specifically, through sample testing in the areas of microbiology, chemistry, and radiochemistry, and the development special projects that would support and expand that testing. This project will strengthen and improve FDA’s efforts to prevent foodborne illnesses and minimize foodborne exposures through building a nationally integrated laboratory science system and equip our partner laboratories with additional resources that can be employed to build and increase sample throughput capacity within their state.
