Inter-laboratory test on the evaluation of real-time PCR techniques

♦ November 16th 2021 ♦ 

An inter-laboratory test (ILT) dedicated to rabies molecular biology technique is soon to begin (first quarter of 2022). The registration is now closed. This ILT session will focus on the evaluation of the real-time RT-PCR techniques used in the National Reference Laboratories (NRLs) for the detection of Lyssavirus RNA. Participation to this assay will be open to European Union NRLs members only. The panel to be tested will include coded RNA Lyssavirus samples (with different level of Lyssavirus RNA and different Lyssavirus species, all belonging to the phylogroup 1), negative and positive RNA controls.
