Due to our broad network of veterinarians, farmers and other chain parties such as animal feed companies and slaughterhouses in the Netherlands, we have various options when looking for and selecting suitable participants for field studies, enabling these studies to be carried out efficiently. We can obtain and process large numbers of samples and data within a narrow time frame. When conducting multicentre trials, samples originating from countries both inside and outside the EU can also be sent to our laboratory
A unique network as part of Animal Health Surveillance System
As the implementer of the Dutch Animal Health Surveillance System (AHSS), we have an unique network for animal health research. The system is accessible and voluntary, providing a broad safety net for the earliest possible detection of animal health signals. Such signals originate from farmers in various livestock sectors (cattle, pigs, poultry, sheep and goats), veterinarians, the processing industry, research institutes and public health authorities. The AHSS researches, bundles and analyses these signals derived from a number of complementary instruments. The results are shared with farmers, veterinarians and relevant parties such as the government, the livestock sector, human healthcare providers and (if necessary) neighbouring countries who may need to take action.
