CDC Awards ATCC $16.9 Million Contract to Man CDC-IRR
October 13th, 2008

If you fear the influenza virus will mutate and become a pandemic, you’ll be pleased to learn that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has awarded a $16.9 million one-year contract to American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) of Manassas, Va. to implement the CDC Influenza Reagent Resource (CDC-IRR), a secure, Web-based system intended to improve access to influenza viruses, test kits and other reagents for approved laboratories.

The system will allow researchers, developers and public health officials access to a repository of influenza viruses, including influenza viruses posing a potential pandemic risk, and kits and reagents (certain substances used in the testing process) through a secure Web portal for approved users.
