EU: Scientists propose field trials for evaluating new rapid BSE tests
The Scientific Steering Committee (SSC), advising the European Commission inter alia on BSE related issues, today [Thursday] published an opinion outlining a set-up for field trials for new rapid BSE tests. The objective of the field trails is to compare the new rapid BSE tests under field conditions (e.g. in different laboratories in different countries etc.) against currently used and authorised tests. They will therefore be tried out on a selected number of samples analysed as part of the current systematic routine testing at slaughter and on a selected number of known positive samples. The number of analyses to be carried out is based on statistical and practical considerations (e.g. limited number of available BSE positive specimens).
