Sciensano & Tetanus

Last updated on 5-9-2019 by Daisy Tysmans

Sciensano is recognized as the Belgian National Reference Laboratory (NRL) for tetanus.

The National Reference Laboratory (NRL) at Sciensano is responsible for diagnosing human tetanus (clinical diagnosis takes precedence) and animal tetanus and for checking immunity against tetanus (particularly in immunocompromised patients). The titration of anti-tetanus antibodies in human serum is performed by a competitive ELISA variant. The quantity of anti-tetanus antibodies in human serum is thus quantified indirectly.
