. Results of anti-HCV and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing were reported to the individual by WDOC health care staff according to the standard protocol for notifying an inmate of infectious illness and post-counseling.
laboratory-based CRE surveillance program requests all clinical microbiology laboratories to submit carbapenem-nonsusceptible Enterobacteriaceae isolates to WSLH
for PCR testing to determine the presence of genes encoding carbapenemase, including KPC, NDM, IMP, VIM, and OXA-48.
standard operating procedure (SOP) for both the nitrate + nitrite and fluoride analysis followed ESS Inorganic Method 220.9.
But at that point, the WSLH
was one of only four testing sites in the state capable of identifying 2009 H1N1.
Taken together, the NYSDH and WSLH
PT programs provide for as many as 57 BPb challenges per year.
limited the dust analysis to the expected major PBDE components.
The findings in this report are based, in part, on contributions by WSLH
and DATCP staff members; epidemiologists, nurses, environmental health sanitarians, and other personnel of the local health department and county jail in Wisconsin; and K Bisgard, Office of Workforce and Career Development, CDC.
All blood collection containers used in the program were lot tested for the presence of lead by a WSLH
adaptation of published protocols (20).

Blood lead levels were determined using graphite furnace atomic absorption spectroscopy at the Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene (WSLH
; Madison, WI).
During November 2002, WDPH and the Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene (WSLH
) confirmed that two ill residents of county A had been infected with WNV.
