From 18-19 September 2014 two researchers of the altona Diagnostics team were invited to a workshop on laboratory diagnostics of Ebolavirus disease (EVD) using real-time RT-PCR hosted at the Uganda Virus Research Institute (UVRI) in Entebbe in collaboration with the World Health Organization/ WHO AFRO.

The altona lab specialists gave training to the workshop participants from 9 african countries on the use of the RealStar® Filovirus Screen RT-PCR Kit.

The RealStar® Filovirus Screen RT-PCR Kit 1.0 is currently in use in the epidemic epicenter in West-Africa by the European Mobile Laboratory for first-line diagnostics of EVD.
