About the EURLMB

The EURLMB is the European Union Reference Laboratory for Marine Biotoxins. As such, it coordinates the activities of a network of National Reference Laboratories (NRL), established in each EU Member State, regarding the methodologies applied to control marine biotoxins in shellfish, in order to protect public health and guarantee a maximum level of food safety.

The Marine Biotoxins Laboratory in Vigo (Spain) was designated as EURLMB in 1993. Since 2004, the EURLMB is under the Spanish Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality.
