Proficiency Testing on the molecular identification of Anisakid nematodes at the species level: aim, instructions and procedure

 The EURLP organizes proficiency testing for laboratories performing official controls for foodborne parasites on food and feed, according to the ISO/IEC 17043:2010. This ISO standard defines the proficiency testing as evaluation of participant performance against pre-established criteria by means of interlaboratory comparisons. The EURLP organize Proficiency Testing (PT) for the molecular identification of Anisakid nematodes at the species level.
Who can participate to the PT. All the National Reference Laboratory (NRL) for parasites from EU member states or associated countries.
Aim of the PT. To correctly identify anisakid L3 larvae and DNA at species level by a molecular method.
PT item used. Four different species of Trichinella ...
