Serology Workshop for MenAfriCar Staff

The Manchester-based Health Protection Agency’s Vaccine Evaluation Unit organised and delivered a serology training workshop for selected members of the MenAfriCar laboratory teams from 28 March – 8 April 2011. The workshop was held in Bamako, Mali at the Centre pour les Vaccins en Developpement (CVD).

During the workshop, participants from the laboratory teams at MenAfriCar partner institutions were trained on ELISA and serum bactericidal antibody (SBA) techniques. These newly acquired skills will prove useful when ELISA is rolled out at all seven African partner institutions and as SBA is introduced at CVD and at CERMES later this year.

Many thanks to Ray Borrow and the rest of the team at HPA for delivering a terrific workshop!
