A national laboratory-based program for the examination of isolates of Neisseria meningitidis from cases of invasive meningococcal disease commenced in 1994 through the collaboration of reference laboratories in each jurisdiction and is designed to supplement data from clinical notification schemes. Information on the phenotype (the serogroup, the serotype and subserotype), on occasion the genotype, and the antibiotic susceptibility of invasive isolates are obtained from examination of isolates. In addition, data from non-culture based laboratory testing, derived from nucleic acid amplification assays and serological examination, are included in the analyses. Annual reports summarising data have been produced and published in Communicable Diseases Intelligence since its inception.
