Office of Epidemic Detection and Response


The Office of Epidemic Detection and Response was created to protect the public health by providing microbiological testing for select agents to detect outbreaks of disease, both natural and intentional.  This office is also responsible for the training of facilities, such as hospitals, throughout the State of Arizona in the early detection of these agents.
Staff is available at the State Public Health Laboratory 7 days a week from 8:00am to 5:00 pm.  Testing is also available 24 hours a day on an emergency basis and can be coordinated with the Bureau of Public Health Emergency Preparedness
