Disease Surveillance & Response

Effective disease surveillance and response capabilities are critical to robust public health systems and overall global health security. Early detection and response initiatives promote the containment or control of an outbreak which may avert regional epidemics or a global pandemic. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), core functions of these systems include: surveillance strategy and coordination, early warning systems; case detection, testing and confirmation; epidemiological data analysis and reporting; epidemic preparedness and effective control measures in response to an outbreak.

Public health departments also run ongoing programs to prevent, control and treat reemerging infectious diseases and persistent epidemics. These include tuberculosis, multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) and HIV/AIDS.

Germfree designs and manufactures biocontainment laboratories and biosafety equipment to serve a wide range applications related to infectious disease surveillance, testing, public health research, epidemic response mobilization and biosecurity.

Germfree’s bioGO® biocontainment suites and mobile labs are pre-designed and adaptive to provide an offsite built, process ready solution for advanced applications and specified biological safety levels including BSL-2, BSL-2+, BSL-3 and ABSL-3. These facilities are available in 4 primary platform technologies.

Mobile (mobile trailer/vehicle lab platform, rapid response Sprinter vans)
Single Module (self-contained biocontainment module platform)
Intermodal (self-contained or interconnected, international ISO container platform)
Modular Laboratories (integrated, interconnected, multi-module, structural building platform)
