TREMKIT will develop practical test kits for the detection and diagnosis of fish-borne treaties in humans and in fish. A broad diagnostic tool will be developed based on monoclonal antibodies for detection of treated antigens in humans. This will be designed to be a simple tool for use in the field. Detection of particular species of treaties in fish or humans will be carried out by the use of highly specific and sensitive PCR techniques. These will allow detection at considerably lower levels than current techniques. TREMKIT will develop the kits into practical tests based on freeze dried reagents which can be used by public health and research laboratories.
