Our Molecular Biology Team uses sensitive and specific real-time PCR technology to detect infectious organisms in clinical specimens
- The Molecular Biology Team is responsible for facilitating fast and specific diagnosis of animal diseases by providing start-of-the-art quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), reverse transcription quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) and Sanger sequence analysis for species/variant determination to veterinary hospitals and practices.
- We perform quick molecular detection and characterisation of pathogens and provide clinically relevant information to clinicians as soon as possible which allows precise decision-making and target measures such as prophylaxis, appropriate therapy, and biosafety plans to control disease outbreaks.
- Molecular work on a wide range of clinical samples within our laboratory is carried out using KingFisher Nucleic Acid Extraction System and ABI 7500 FAST Real-Time PCR System according to specific and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), which have been developed for all our activities.
