WP2-T1 Transfer and validation of existing diagnostic tools

Participants :

  • 1 - IFREMER
  • 2 - CSIC
  • 4 - CVI-IMARES
  • 5 - IRTA
  • 6 - MI
  • 8 - UNIPD

The transfer and the validation of techniques already existing for the detection of relevant bivalve pathogens including OsHV-1, Vibrio species including Vibrio splendidus, V. aestuarianus, Nocardia crassostreae and Marteilia refringens will be carried out. Thus, the different participants involved in WP2 -Task 2 and WP3 will use the same techniques to search relevant pathogens in samples collected in their own country.

In order to transfer diagnostic tools previously developed for OsHV-1, Vibrio splendidus, V. aestuarianus, Nocardia crassostreae and M. refringens, an interlaboratory comparison assay will be carried out. A collection of reference material (positive controls) will be constituted (Participants 1, 2, 4 and 5) that each participant could share in this project. The reference material for the highlighted pathogens will be send to the participants involved in the interlaboratory comparison assay (Participants 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8).
