PPR reference material to be sent
Reference material for PPR diagnostic methods will be sent to all NRLs early 2018
The EURL-PPR is currently preparing PPR-positive sera that can be used to prepare internal reference material for PPR antibodies detection by cELISA. We are also preparing lyophilised, inactivated PPR vaccine that can be used as positive control for RT-PCR and RT-QPCR. These reference materials will be shipped to all NRLs before the next Proficiency test.
