In a 10-day lab workshop our African partners learned how to test mosquito field samples for species ID, Plasmodium infection & #nsecticideResistance markers using ready-to-go lyopellets and the AnophelesVector LabDisk.
The specific objectives of the practical laboratory workshop were:
Objective 1. Training on the use of ready-to-go lyopellets for molecular diagnosis of mosquito samples on the QuantStudio5 qPCR machine
Objective 2. Training on the use of the automated diagnostic platform “Anopheles gambiae s.l. LabDisk” on the QIAGEN LabDisk player
Objective 3. Training on the analysis and reporting of RT-qPCR results generated with the DMC-MALVEC RT-qPCR assays
Communication of project activities and results to the local population of three communities of Yaoundé was also performed on Saturday 25 January 2020.
