Divisions

Molecular Biology

  • PCR detection of bacterial, parasitic and viral pathogens of poultry, ornamental and wild birds
  • Advanced typing of specific viral and bacterial pathogens

Virology

  • Viral infection diagnostics from faeces, swabs, blood and organ samples of poultry, ornamental and wild birds (virus isolation and identification)
  • Testing of sera for antibodies against viruses by means of commercial and self-developed ELISA, hemagglutination (inhibition) tests
  • Production of antigens and antisera for self-developed diagnostic tests

Bacteriology

  • Bacterial and fungal infection diagnostics from faeces, swabs and organ samples from poultry and ornamental birds
  • Characterization of bacterial isolates by biochemical and molecular biological typing methods, serotyping
  • Antibiotic sensitivity testing
  • Diagnostics of Salmonella (according to EN ISO 6579:2002)
  • Testing the effect of disinfection agents on specific microorganisms

Parasitology

  • Parasitological examination of faeces and organ samples or intestinal swabs for poultry and ornamental birds
  • Counting of coccidial oocysts (McMaster method), oocystsporulation
  • Histomonas detection (by PCR)

Serology

  • Testing blood sera from poultry for antibodies against bacteria and viruses using commercial and self-developed ELISA methods, hemagglutination (inhibition) tests
  • Fast agglutination of poultry sera using specific antigens (Salmonella, Mycoplasma)
  • Production of antigens and antisera for self-developed diagnostic tests
