Short Discription

Within the department of Medical-Microbiology, the Laboratory of Clinical Virology is specialized in fast and reliable diagnosis for entero- rhino- and parechovirus infections. Virus genotyping is applied to show the dispersion of the different virus genotypes and their relation with clinical symptoms.

The ML-2 and ML-3 laboratories for virus culture and molecular techniques are fully equipped for picornavirus culture and diagnostics performed within the AIROPico project. In addition, there is excellent expertise within the field of primary cell culture to further develop and apply human 3D cell culture models for application within AIROPico.
