CLS Faculty Collaborates with Biocontainment Unit Personnel

In preparation for possible patients in The Nebraska Medical Center (TNMC) biocontainment unit, TNMC and The Nebraska Public Health Lab (NPHL) are reaching out to the Clinical Laboratory Science (CLS) Program to help with training employees in some manual laboratory techniques, such as manual white blood cell counts. If possible, items in the biocontainment unit should remain in the lockdown environment, which means patient specimens for clinical diagnostic work are not submitted to the main lab. The laboratory work is done as point-of-care procedures. Some of the CLS faculty are helping to train the personnel who will be performing the bedside procedures.
