Antimicrobial susceptibility


The National Food Institute acts as the WHO Collaborating Centre for antimicrobial resistance and as European Community Reference Laboratory for antimicrobial resistance in food-borne pathogens.

The institute is responsible for conducting:

  • WHO GFN External Quality Assurance System (EQAS) for Salmonella serotyping and antimicrobial susceptibilty testing methods
  • EURL External Quality Assurance System for susceptibility testing of SalmonellaCampylobacterE.coli, enterococci and stahpylococci.

Through Dianova it is possible for private laboratories to join the External Quality Assurance Systems, please contact us for more information.
