Each fall a joint PPR/Capripox NRL Workshop is organized to inform NRL’s of the state of the art of both diseases in Europe, to discuss the annual proficiency test results and to allow for networking with other NRL’s. This workshop is organized by the EURL for diseases caused by Capripox viruses, in Brussel one year, it is organized by the EURL for PPR, in Montpellier the other year.
In this section documents related to past and present annual workshops can be found.
An important task of the EURL capripox is to organize training opportunities for NRLs. Different types of training are available (molecular diagnostics, serology, virus isolation, phylogeny and FGS,..). In this section a request for training can be made. Please note that when we receive a request for training, this request is first transferred to the European Commission, who decides if the request can be granted and what the conditions are.
A proficiency test for the detection of anti-capripox antibodies as well as a proficiency test for the detection of capripox nucleic acids is organized annually by the EURL capripox for NRL’s from EU member states and some third countries. In this section reports from previous PT’s can be downloaded. The Proficiency test is organized conform ISO 17043.
SOPS related to capripox diagnostics (molecular diagnostics, serology, virus isolation,..) can be found in this section
NRL’s can request reference materials from the EURL capripox. To do so, a request for one or more types of reference material can be made. You will then be contacted by a representative of the EURL capripox to arrange for the necessary documents and permits and to arrange shipping of the materials.
