The main aim of the Proficiency Tests on detection of Salmonella is to evaluate the performance of the NRLs-Salmonella for their ability to detect Salmonella in different matrices in the presence of competitive microorganisms. For this, the EURL-Salmonella provides per study detailed procedures in a Protocol. These Protocols,  and the examples of the blank test reports for the Primary Production Stage (PPS) studies are listed below. For the reports of the different studies see 'Publications'
