A look behind the scenes

Wageningen Bioveterinary Research (WBVR) collaborates with public and private partners to safeguard public and animal health through prevention, eradication and control of animal diseases. To show the presence of animal diseases we can carry out 300 different tests. We perform 300,000 tests per year in our laboratories in Lelystad.
