Inter-laboratory test for rabies diagnosis 2017: Report released

♦ 12 September 2017 ♦

The report of the 2017 session has been sent to all participants this week. The content also includes the answers to the technical questionnaire and a reminder of the EURL recommendations. This year, FAT, RTCIT and RT-PCR techniques were evaluated. Additionaly, an evaluation was done on the “overall assessment” of the laboratories. As done last year, two random samples were included to avoid collusion. These samples have not been taken into account in the evaluation process. Global evaluation shows again a good performance level. Participant laboratories will receive an online satisfaction survey regarding the test send directly from our quality department, as well as the usual attestation with summary of performances. The report is published on the EURL website for private members only.
