Since 2005, the Center of Veterinary Diagnostics has worked closely with GD Animal Health, one of the largest centers for animal health protection, Deventer, the Netherlands.
Our employees are trained on base of GD Animal Health. Every year we participate in the test trials, confirming our competence. Participation in this kind of "examinations" is an opportunity to check the reliability of our results, compare them with the results of other laboratories, determine the reliability of the diagnostic methods that we use. To date, GD Animal Health is one of the leading animal health organizations.
