Diagnostik- & Forschungsinstitut für Hygiene, Mikrobiologie und Umweltmedizin

Direct detection of viruses and parasites is achieved as required through pathogen-specific DNA or RNA using real-time PCR testing. Qualitative and quantitative detection is possible with these procedures.

In addition, procedures such as reverse hybridization and sequencing are applied, e.g., for genotyping and resistance gene detection.
