The European Mobile Laboratory (EMLab) Consortium can deploy state of the art boxed field laboratories as well as trained scientists and technicians to epidemics and outbreaks of infectious diseases caused by pathogens up to risk group 4 to perform diagnostics and supporting clinical laboratory analysis on site. The EMLab Cosortium was established in the framework of the European Commission (DG-DEVCO) funded project "Establishment of Mobile Laboratories for Pathogens up to Risk Group 4 in Combination with CBRN Capacity Building in Sub-Saharan Africa" (IFS 2011/272-372; from 2012 to 2015).
