Naval Medical Research Center labs support Operation United Assistance

U.S. Navy Lt. Jose Garcia pipettes each patient sample into a testing plate for analysis in order to identify the Ebola virus. Garcia works at a Naval Medical Research Center mobile laboratory at Bushrod Island, Liberia. The NMRC sent two mobile testing labs to Liberia to support Operation United Assistance. Each two-person lab is capable of testing up to 80 samples per day. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is the lead U.S. Government organization for Operation United Assistance. U.S. Africa Command is supporting the effort by providing command and control, logistics, training and engineering assets to contain the Ebola virus outbreak in West African nations.
