Modular Medical Facilities, Mobile, Chemical/Biological Agent Detection
Definition : Mobile modular medical facilities that are capable of biological and/or chemical agent detection (i.e., a mini-laboratory). These facilities are typically equipped with all the devices required for sampling, detection, and analysis of chemical (e.g., nerve, blister, toxic industrial compounds) and/or biological agents (e.g., pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, and toxins). These facilities may also have electric generators, air conditioners, meteorological stations, and computer and communication systems. Chemical/biological agent mobile facilities are used by disaster response agencies, medical emergency teams, environmental technicians, and civil defense and military personnel. Some facilities include an overpressure protection system that permits working in contaminated areas.
