The National Reference Laboratory for Listeria is responsible for the differentiation and characterisation of listerial isolates from food and environmental samples.

The isolates are identified by biochemical or molecular-biological means. Depending on the issue at hand a serological test can be carried out which leads to allocation to one of the thirteen serotypes. For the clarification of epidemiological questions such as confirming outbreaks of Listeria caused by food, additional fine typing is carried out using pulsed field gel electrophoresis.

The detection of Listeria from human isolates is carried out by the National Reference Laboratory for Listeria.
