Microbiology tools

Tools for analysis of microbiology laboratory data and comparison of laboratory capacities and capabilities.

Laboratory capacity and capability

The primary goal of the EU Laboratory Capability Monitoring System is to assess the capacity and capability of microbiology laboratories at national and EU level.

Laboratory tests for Zika virus diagnostic

Laboratories should receive clinical and epidemiological information for establishing their investigation strategy, including date of onset of illness, travel history (date and locations), past flaviviral immunisation records and pregnancy status.

Seroincidence calculator tool

The seroincidence calculator utilises the combination of serum antibody levels (lgG, lgM, and lgA) at a given point in time to estimate the time since seroconversion, which in turn gives an estimate of annual 'force of infection' in the tested population.
