Avian influenza

It is expected that we will all have to deal with the topic of „avian flu” in the near future. The Robert Koch Institute has therefore set up an Internet site on this topic. You can look at this information for yourself by visiting the RKI home page: www.rki.de.

We will have a quick test available for all medical practices and will inform you immediately about the relevant test result.

The materials required for this are two nose and/or throat swabs and a normal serum sample tube for the retained sample. In the case a of positive test result, we will take care of all the necessary steps.

Reportable disease
Reporting to the competent office of health will – as in the case of other notifiable diseases – be performed by the laboratory as well.
