All manner of pathogens and mutations are routinely detected in nucleic acid in the Molecular Diagnostics department. The interdisciplinary range of analyses is used to detect the presence of viruses, bacteria and parasites.
The most commonly used method – polymerase chain reaction (PCR) – is a high-quality and sensitive approach that returns results within a short time. Sequencing is used to identify bacteria from both primary material and following isolation. Sequencing methods are also used to type hepatitis B and C viruses.
By constantly expanding on our existing methods and techniques and introducing new ones, we are able to offer a broad and up-to-date range of analyses.
