Welcome to the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Biodetection Technology Resource website. PNNL has a long history of conducting applied research in the field of biodetection. Our work includes method development and optimization for sample collection, sample preparation, rapid detection, and biothreat detection, as well as basic research to discover and analyze biosignatures of host responses to pathogen exposure.

This website summarizes our current activities related to biodetection for first responder and homeland security missions, and includes a biodetection product guide, test reports, and links to upcoming first responder-related events. Be sure to visit often for up-to-date resources and information.
