Publications Database

Publications Database is an online system designed to list the new scientific publications related to diagnostic techniques (culture, extraction & identification, molecular characterisation and interferon gamma detection).


Periodic searches will be carried out in scientific databases and an e-mail will be sent automatically to all NRLs/EC with the latest updates. A link to the publications will be available.
