Welcome to the European Union Reference Laboratory for Foodborne Viruses

The purpose of this website is primarily to provide information to the National Reference Laboratories (NRLs) for Foodborne Viruses in the European Member States, but could also be useful for other laboratories that perform analyses of foodborne viruses in food.

The website contains technical information and guidance on methods for analyses of foodborne viruses in different foods.
