Sample testing advice for Ebola virus

As part of Public Health England’s Ebola virus disease: clinical management and guidance there is a section on frequently asked questions on laboratory testing of samples from patients with possible Ebola virus disease.

Guidance on the risk assessment and management of viral haemorrhagic fevers (VHF), including Ebola, was updated by the Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens (ACDP) in August 2014 and is the principal source of guidance for clinical staff managing patients.

For further information see: Ebola: sample testing advice for laboratory staff.
