Training on advanced Vibrio PCR methods at CVI - Croatia (20 - 24 April 2015)

From 20th to 24th of April 2015, the training period on Vibrio spp. detection was held at Croatian Veterinary Institute (CVI) of Split. An expert from the “EURL – CEFAS – Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science” was invited to attend the training period as scientific coordinator on advanced Vibrio PCR methods, namely real time PCR and end point PCR. The participants were one expert from CVI, two from Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale dell’Abruzzo e del Molise “G. Caporale” of Teramo and other two from Food Safety Veterinary Institute of Albania.

The training aimed to the development of knowledge and skills in order to apply innovative molecular methods for species detection and identification of pathogenic determinants in Vibrio spp. strains isolated from seafood.

After a short presentation of working programme and administrative issues, trainees practiced in the laboratory molecular methods for Vibrio spp. detection, by setting up and running “monoplex” and “multiplex” conventional and real time PCR assay for Vibrio parahaemolyticus, Vibrio vulnificus and Vibrio cholera.

The event was important to strengthen opportunities and objectives and give a further impulse to communication and networking among relevant actors involved in this Adriatic cooperation initiative.
