Molecular diagnosis of infectious diseases

Continuous progress in molecular diagnostics and in-depth knowledge of human medicine and molecular biology have enabled our laboratory to develop modern, innovative methods for researching infectious diseases.

Real-time PCR is a highly accurate, rapid and cost-effective method. This method enables specific and sensitive detection of DNA and RNA and differentiation of numerous bacteria, viruses and parasites in various matrices (blood, stools, samples, etc.).

The ultimate ambition of the Molecular Diagnostics of Infectious Diseases department is a reasonable, individualised diagnosis at the highest level as a basis for early diagnosis and optimised treatment.

Our tests are subdivided into different categories according to clinical symptoms and indications, and pathogens.

  • Hepatitis B/Hepatitis C
  • Bacterial respiratory tract infections
  • Viral respiratory infections
  • Influenza A/B/H1N1
  • Bacterial gastroenteritis
  • Viral gastroenteritis
  • Parasitic gastroenteritis
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Opportunistic infections
  • Fever and skin rashes
  • Vesicular eruptions
  • Dermatophytes
  • Eye infections
  • Low- and high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV)
