Keeping Warfighters and Civilians Safe

The battlefield is a dangerous place, where warfighters can be under threat of chemical weapon attacks. Similarly, the general population can be exposed to toxic compounds through industrial accidents or even intentional release by terrorist attacks. In one of our laboratories, our focus is on developing medical countermeasures to help protect both warfighters and civilians from some of the most potentially harmful chemical agents or toxic industrial chemicals in the world; things like nerve agents, sulfur mustard, and chlorine gas. In fact, our chemical surety group can synthesize these and other toxic industrial chemicals in-house, saving our clients time and money.

Our custom chemical fume hoods in these laboratories enable us to work on multiple dedicated studies at the same time while maintaining high animal throughput, ultimately streamlining scheduling for clients, and providing the best possible care for the animals we’re responsible for. We also have dedicated individual laboratories to run dilute and neat chemical agent research simultaneously, further increasing throughput and decreasing costs.

The temperature, humidity, and lights in this facility are monitored 24 hours a day, as are the refrigerators, freezers, and ultra-low freezers, ensuring the integrity of the chemicals and samples we’re working with and the quality of the research for our clients.


Contact MRIGlobal to further understand our expertise in testing and evaluating these and other countermeasures, as well as our work testing and evaluating Chemical, Biological, and Explosives detection equipment and products for use in the field or laboratory to help counter the WMD threat.
