Details

This Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli EQA scheme focuses on raising awareness of:

  • the molecular methods used
  • the variations of the molecular methods used which can subsequently highlight differences in proficiency testing (PT) results obtained
  • limitation of molecular methods available on the market
  • updates in International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) methods
