Central diagnostic lab

Ghent University centralizes data about Bsal outbreaks and monitoring. We perform diagnostic qPCR and histopathology to confirm positive cases. If you want to add data, please contact Prof. Dr. An Martel (an.martel@ugent.be).

EU Network of Diagnostic Centres

Our network of diagnostic centres in the EU, capable of diagnosing Bsal, currently consists of 14 labs in 11 countries. During the course of this project, webinars and instruction videos on the aetiology, epidemiology, pathogenesis, pathology, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of Bsal will be available upon subscription. Laboratories which have participated successfully in the ring test for Bsal can be found here. If your lab is interested in participating in theĀ  ring test in order to join our diagnostic network, please contact us at bsalinfoeurope@gmail.com or using the contact form on this website.
