Call regarding tests for the diagnosis of TSE in ruminants
The European Commission’s Directorate General for Health and Consumer Protection has issued a call for expressions of interest to participate in a programme for the evaluation of tests for the
diagnosis of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE) in ruminants.
The objectives of the call are the identification and the selection of new tests that may be suitable to include in a programme for the evaluation of tests for the diagnosis of TSE in
The evaluation programme is limited to tests that are sufficiently well developed to market after approval, and which can be shown to offer potential on the basis of previous evaluation work
carried out by or on behalf of the developer. Priority will be given to tests which can demonstrate high sensitivity, high specificity and low limits of detection.
