Abstract

Of all weapons of mass destruction, biological weapons (BW) today present the greatest danger. A belief that state sponsored armies or terrorist organizations, groups or individuals will use this type of weapon has never been greater which demands a capability for rapid medical response and early intervention. The specter of potential BA is well known and includes: anti-human, anti-plant and anti-animal agents. Unusual outbreaks of illnesses might be essential suspicion in recognizing of deliberate releasing of biological agents. Rapid response to BW attack depends on rapid detection and identification of BA that includes different methods such as: immunofluorescence assay, enzyme-linked immunoassay, immune-chromatographic assay and Nucleic acid detection. Molecular diagnostic methods, based on DNA amplification known as PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) are promising tools in fast and specific detection and identification of biological agent.
