5. Describa brevemente la labor desarrollada por la instalación en materia de defensa biológica, con indicación de los tipos de microorganismos(9) y/o toxinas estudiados, así como las investigaciones al aire libre sobre los aerosoles biológicos

FOI CBRN Defence and Security provides expert knowledge of biological and toxic agents which is highly relevant to the performance of the Swedish Armed Forces (SAF), the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and to the civilian community. The division pursues development of rapid molecular identification tools for the Swedish Armed Forces and civil preparedness agencies. Related to this is also operational routines for the analysis of samples with mixed or unknown content of CBRN substances on commission of different branches of the Swedish police force. The division also provides high-resolution genomic forensic analysis of biothreat agents, for verification purposes, and maintains reference collections of biothreat agents and related strains and species, investigates the ecology, epidemiology and evolution of model pathogens. On occasion evaluation of novel therapeutics on behalf of external customers is performed. Other activities include detection of biological agents in order to discover the presence of health threatening levels of biological substances, before they have negative impact on mission effectiveness and provide timely information which will permit forces to adopt an appropriate level of individual and collective protection. The institute is also building and maintaining competence in the area of biological risk and threat assessments for civilian preparedness.
