biobank currently hosts parasites collected by laboratory activities performed
on food and biological samples from farmed animals, pets and wildlife animals.
Precaution are not essential because parasites are
stored in alcohol (70%) or potassium dichromate solution and so are not viable.
Media request usual precaution in handling vials and other containers. Check
after intervals the level of liquid media and – if necessary – add fresh
may include microscopical and macroscopical observations.
identity of each strain is checked by the most significant techniques available
for this purpose and the taxon in question. The following options are available
for identity checks: morphology (by taxonomic keys); pathologic lesions and
laboratories, that supply biological resources to IBVR, use testing methods
performed according to UNI EN ISO/IEC 17025 quality system.
