Presentation

Biological Threat and BioDIM Concept

The current issues of detection, identification and monitoring of biological agents according to BIO DIM concept will be discussed. The history of the biological weapon attacks is very old. Up to day the terrorist abuse of biological agents it the most possible. The biggest risk of the biological incident is done by hidden (silent) dissemination of the B-agent when the first signs of incident were associated with the first diagnosis of infection disease. BioDIM (Detection, Identification and Monitoring of Biological Agents) concept include technical means before, in the course and after biological incident. Considering the time as a substantial factor for resolution of BIO incident, no one technology is able to cover the BIO DIM requirements. As already known, detection, identification and typing needs specific technologies oriented to different targets, detection technologies rely rather on physico-chemical properties of microbes, as are optic or fluorescent characteristics of whole microbes, identification and typing rely rather to their unique molecular characteristics representing by several types of biomolecules
