Implementation of Novel Diagnostics for emerging infectious diseases
19th and 20th of May 2021
A series of infectious diseases show late and/or similar signs and symptoms and can only be diagnosed based on laboratory tests. In the context of outbreaks, reference laboratories should be prepared to design and validate new assays to detect emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases. This workshop aims to provide concepts of verification, evaluation and validation strategies of novel laboratory diagnostics methods for rapid diagnosis and surveillance in new and ongoing outbreaks.
The workshop recording is separated on 2 videos for each day and within each video there are separated chapters for each session.
