Chemical Threats Response Lab

The Chemical Threats Response Lab (CT Lab) at the Utah Public Health Laboratory is funded through the CDC Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) Cooperative Agreement and serves as the only Laboratory Response Network for Chemical Threats (LRN-C) lab in the State of Utah.

As a LRN-C Level 2 laboratory, CT lab analyzes clinical specimens (blood and urine) for the suspected presence or exposure of toxic chemical agents, utilizing GC-MS, ICP-MS, and LC-MS/MS instrumentation when a suspected, recognized or announced chemical terrorism event occurs.
