Welcome to the TSE-LAB-NET Community!

Who can join the TSE-LAB-NET Community?
The principal participants in this Community are EU National Reference Laboratories (NRLs), the Community Reference Laboratory, the European Commission (DG SANCO) and TSE test manufacturers. Other laboratories participating in our TSE EQA exercises will also be invited to join. The main purpose of this Community is to provide a confidential forum for the sharing of EQA results, and discussions with the Commission, testing laboratories and test manufacturers

A wide range of training and illustrative material relating to TSE can be found in the open access web pages by following this link:
