The primary objective of the Public Health – Seattle & King County Laboratory is to assist in the prevention of disease spread.
This is accomplished by identifying patients and environmental samples which carry organisms that are potentially harmful to the health of the residents of King County. One of the ways to achieve this objective is for the public health laboratory to make available certain services to health care providers.
