Metrology for Monitoring Infectious Diseases, Antimicrobial Resistance and Harmful Micro-organisms (INFECT-MET)

-A +A

This project aims to develop novel measurement procedures and validation frameworks to support current and emerging molecular approaches for efficient, harmonised and rapid diagnosis, surveillance and monitoring of infectious diseases. The ultimate aim of project is to establish routes for improving the accuracy, robustness, comparability and traceability of measurements by metrological methods.

In this project, the Bioanalysis Laboratory collaborates on the 1st, 4th, 5th, and 6th work packages: Development of higher order methods for accurate measurements of infectious agents in clinical samples; comparison of qPCR methods, dPCR, flow cytometry, and microscopy methods using different types of calibrants.
