Lab leaders from across the nation come to Kansas State University to prepare for an animal disease outbreak.
This month's training session started Monday. K-state is hosting the lab robotics training at the Biosecurity Research Institute.
It gives lab leaders the ability to process thousands of diagnostic samples, just as they'd do in a real disease outbreak. K-state's Veterinary Diagnostic Lab has the equipment to respond to several animal diseases.
The leaders who come to K-state will take what they've learned back home and train technicians there.
