Training on GenoListeria at NEBIH (HU NRL for Lm)

From 20 April 2022 to 22 April 2022


EURL for Listeria monocytogenes (Lm) organised a training for NEBIH as HU-NRL for Lm from 20 to 22 April 2022.

The aim of this training course was to implement GenoListeria screening method to detect the molecular serotypes and major clonal complexes for a large quantity of strains. These 3 days of training enabled to identify the clonal complexes of 88 strains.

Part of the training was dedicated to whole genome sequencing analysis.

GenoListeria is now set in place and will be implemented to monitor Listeria. The Hungarian NRL wishes to get at short term the accreditation on the method.
