A two-day meeting has been organised by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE), for experts on the prevention, handling and treatment of influenza-type viruses and pathogenic material.

The threat of a global flu outbreak will feature strongly in the discussions.

Representatives from the Health and Safety Executive, Institute for Animal Health, Health Protection Agency and the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory will speak at the event.

‘The timing is coincidental, but it’s an opportune moment for experts to come together and discuss the likelihood and impact of a flu pandemic and what needs to be done to combat the threat,’ says IChemE director of policy, Andrew Furlong.

Speakers will discuss the release of specific pathogens, including H1N1 – a new variant of which is responsible for the swine flu outbreak, rapid-response biomanufacturing of vaccines and antibodies, and patient decontamination and the temporary provision of patient isolation systems.
