Our microbiological unit is specialized in working with bacteria, bacterial viruses (Bacteriophages) and fungi. We combine classical microbiology like detection, enrichment, isolation and identification according to official guidelines with the potential of a molecular biological and immunological testing facility. We test raw materials, pharmaceutical products, bacterial cell banks, cosmetics, medical devices and samples from preclinical trials.
