The PT scheme on the identification and typing of pathogenic E. coli strains aims at evaluating and improving the capability of the NRLs to identify the main virulence genes and serogroups of VTEC and other pathogenic E. coli strains. The laboratory methods employed are available in the dedicated section of this web site. The PT reports are available below.
The PT scheme on the detection of pathogenic E. coli aims at evaluating and improving the capability of the NRLs to detect the presence of VTEC and other pathogenic E. coli in food and related matrices. The laboratory methods employed include the ISO methods for the detection of VTEC (ISO 16654:2001 and ISO/TS 13136:2012) as well as other methods developed by the EU-RL and available in the dedicated section of this web site. The PT reports are available below.
Proficiency tests on detection, identification and typing methods are conducted for the NRLs for E. coli. The anonymized overall results of the studies are available in this section. Participants download their own individual reports from the RESTRICTED AREA of the web site. The EU DG SANCO has access to the results of the single EU NRLs.
The PT scheme on molecular typing of pathogenic E. coli strains aims at evaluating and improving the capability of the NRLs to perform pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and other molecular typing techniques, to best accomplish the duty of contributing to the upcoming European database of molecular typing data managed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). The PT reports are available below.
