The COMPARE Work Package 2 (Harmonised standards for sample processing and sequencing) has begun to release protocols prepared by COMPARE partners.

The collection of COMPARE protocols for sample processing and sequencing is now being released.

The process of collecting and reviewing the various protocols from the COMPARE partners started early on in the project. After compiling the similar aspects of the various protocols, several Laboratory Operating Procedures and Standard Operating Procedures have been identified and are now being released publicly.

The protocols provided can be either Laboratory Operating Procedures (LOPs) or Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). LOPs are those protocols that have been used at least by the provider, but as yet have not been validated in detail. SOPs are protocols that have been validated in detail and are already published. In some cases, different matrices and different pathogens (such as virus, bacteria, and/or parasite) have been used for validation.

Additional protocols will be released shortly.
