Quality management in reference tests for the diagnosis of classical swine fever
|Author(s) :||G. Floegel-Niesmann & V. Moennig|
Inter-laboratory comparison tests for the diagnosis of classical swine fever (CSF) have been established by the national swine fever laboratories of European Union (EU) Member States. They provide a method of measuring both the quality of the results of diagnostic tests performed by laboratories and the competence with which they were performed. The objective is that all laboratories obtain the same result when investigating the same sample. This study evaluates the results of serological and virological reference tests for CSF (neutralisation test and virus isolation) performed over a period of three years.
