Description

The project aims to establish and / or integrate a panel of standard procedures and necessary quality control materials for establishment of regional and global harmonization of nuclear and nuclear related diagnostic techniques for early detection of animal and zoonotic pathogens, using standardized and internationally recognized principles. It additionally aims to establish multi pathogen detection platforms in order to enable for differential diagnosis of syndromic diseases using a single testing run.

Objectives

The overall objective of the project is to establish and upgrade (as appropriate) consistent and sustainable principles of QC / QA with technical support in the participating laboratories, which will enable for a rapid and harmonized detection of infectious animal diseases using nuclear and nuclear related techniques. It additionally aims to establish a set of multi-pathogen detection platforms for simultaneous differential diagnosis of syndromic diseases in MS.

Specific objectives

To develop a procedure for easy access, free-of-charge genetic sequencing services for pathogens of? the priority diseases among the partners of the VETLAB Network.

To develop a set of internationally acceptable standards for the molecular diagnostic techniques for priority diseases among the partners of the VETLAB Network.

To develop a set of internationally acceptable standards for the serological diagnostic techniques for priority diseases among the partners of the VETLAB Network.

To development a procedures for simultaneous detection of multiple pathogens (multi-pathogen detection panels).

To establish an information platform for integrated information collection, geo-visualization, analysis and decision making.
