The Tenth Team of the European Mobile Laboratory Consortium in Guinea.

On the 28th of September the European Mobile Laboratory Consortium (EMLab) dispatched the tenth team to Guinea.

The European Mobile Laboratory Consortium continues to support the country of Guinea in the current Ebola Virus outbreak, by continuously providing laboratory service for the diagnostics of Ebola Virus disease (EVD) in patients in the south-east of Guinea. Currently the tenth team is working in Guéckédou. The team is composed of scientists from the University of Antwerp, Belgium, and one research technician from the Institute of Virology of the University of Marburg, Germany. The team is further supported by two Guinean scientists who have been working with EMLab since June 2014.

The EMLab unit in Guéckédou is providing molecular diagnostics for EVD seven days a week and works in close collaboration with WHO, the Guinean Health Authorities, Médecins Sans Frontières and the Red Cross.
