BioSciences and Laboratory Staff Augmentation

A-TEK works with federal agencies to protect the nation from biohazards. With bio-experts and laboratorians located throughout the country, we sample and test the environment for biohazards and report the results to the decision makers in near-real time.

Our biosciences services are designed to protect our cities from bioterrorism during major events; to detect dangerous organisms that threaten our drinking water, fisheries, lakes and streams; and to ensure our farmlands are free from harmful biohazards.

A-TEK provides laboratory staff augmentation to perform complex molecular-biology techniques to identify and detect the intentional release of select biological agents. A-TEK operates and manages laboratories providing scientific support services that execute good laboratory practices (GLP) in the performance of real time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) analysis. Our focus is on the analysis, detection and reporting of collected data and statistics for the presence of aerosolized bioterrorism threat (BT) agents that could be classified as a biological terrorist threat harmful to the American people. Services provided include:
