This 2005 training course about "Quality Analysis and Management in Animal Production" proposed by Prise, funded by CIRAD with participation of NIVR aimed to give a first global and multidisciplinary approach of quality issues in animal productions, related to the Vietnamese context.
In 2005, CIRAD organized in the frame of PRISE  a training course in 'Quality analysis and management in Animal Production . This first global and interdisciplinary approach of quality was a necessary theoretical step to introduce more specific and practical topics, as requested by some participants last year. Thus, in 2006, we propose a practical training period on 'Salmonella detection and identification in animal products'. The NIVR food hygiene laboratory, working in partnership with CIRAD in the frame of PRISE consortium, on food microbiology and hygienic quality in animal production, will welcome the participants for this training session. Together with local specialists, an expert from a Salmonella reference laboratory in France in AFSSA , will present an overview of standard techniques and more specific quantitative methods, possibly used for research and control purposes of Salmonella in food or other samples in animal production chains. This kind of practical training is important to reinforce the links between the food hygiene laboratories in Vietnam and could represent a first step for a national laboratory network, part of a regional network in South-East Asia.
