National Animal Health Laboratory Network:
 Enhancing Early Detection


A State and Federal partnership to safeguard animal health

When a large-scale animal-disease outbreak occurs, tracking its progress and performing diagnostic tests on thousands of diagnostic samples is a big challenge.  To get the job done, it is very important that all the parties involved—Federal agencies and laboratories managed by State governments and universities—communicate and collaborate effectively.  The National Animal Health Laboratory Network (NAHLN) now forms part of a nationwide strategy to coordinate the work of all organizations providing surveillance and testing services.
