Colorado Laboratory Forum

Welcome to the Colorado Laboratory Forum




The Colorado Laboratory Forum was formed to ensure that our state laboratories could rapidly, safely and accurately identify biological agents(naturally ocurring or intentionally released) and communicate testing information via appropriate methods, to allow law enforcement to effectively respond to public health threats and emergencies.




  • Enhance communications methods for rapid response to state, national or global emergencies.
  • Improve capabilities by strategic planning and statewide laboratory exercises.
  • Train laboratory workers to rapidly identify dangerous bacteria via online and wet workshops.




Members of the Colorado Laboratory Forum are scientists with testing capability to detect biologic, chemical or radiologic agents used in terrorist acts and work in the collowing laboratories:


Clinical | Public Health | Veterinary | Agricultural | Forensic | Environmental | Research | Military | Federal (CDC, FDA, USDA, EPA)
