"A Bio crime is an Intentional act of assault directed at a person and is similar to an assault crime, is done using biological agents such as pathogen, viruses, bacteria, germs, toxins etc.
Indeed, today the capability to manipulate and disseminate pathogens has enhanced to a point where there is grave concern about the potential use of microbiological organisms to attack and cause serious harm to humans, animals, and plants. In addition to inflicting harm, bio criminals use microorganisms or toxins as weapons to invoke fear and affect economic well-being. Significant effort must be put forth to identify individuals who use such weapons and to prevent or minimize their ability to execute acts of bio crime. However, the use of a bioweapon in a criminal case should be taken as seriously as that of a bioterrorist attack. Once a bio crime is suspected, ensures that the clinical laboratory does not discard microbial isolates, but preserves them for forensic analyses or transfers them under a chain-of-custody procedure.
