Lab Technician Torhout, Belgium
November 2014 --- September 2015
As Lab technician at DGZ I was active at the department Serologie. I performed ELISA's on bovine and swine blood/serum samples in order to screen them for different diseases. Diseases screened by ELISA where Paratuberculosis (PTBC), Neospora, Salmonella and AujeszkygE. Next to this screening method, which was the main task of my temporary employment, I helped with preparing samples for screening, I registered the results acquired after analysis, I interpreted the results in order to find and report potential errors furthermore I did my part to keep the lab clean and organized.
