APHL Publishes Freshwater Algal Toxin Guidance for Labs

The Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) has published, “A Freshwater Algal Toxin Guidance Document for Public Health Laboratories.”  The 14-page guidance document provides an overview of health concerns, federal and state guidelines, analytical methods, available resources and more.  As this area of study continues to evolve, APHL will likely update this document. Please let them know if you have suggestions for, or would like to get involved in any future editions.  For more information and questions, please contact Sarah Wright of APHL at sarah.wright@aphl.org or 240-485-2730.
