Proficiency tests

EURL for Campylobacter organise at least one proficiency test (PT) each year for the National Reference Laboratories (NRL) to detect and quantify Campylobacter spp. in different types of matrices.

The aim with the PTs is to provide NRLs with details of relevant analytical methods for analysing samples that mimic realistic diagnostic samples to be analysed for Campylobacter in the member states (MSs). The aim is also to assess the performance of the NRLs and thereby to identify potential analytical problems that could be solved by assistance from the EURL in order to improve the performance. 

Below is a list of proficiency tests sent out by the EURL-Campylobacter to the NRLs. Final reports for Proficiency Tests are available as pdf. The reports are decoded because they are classified according to the Swedish Public Access to Information and Secrecy Act Chapter 15, 1 a §, 30:23 and 31:12.
