The laboratory is equipped with modern equipments of leading companies in the field of diagnostics, which allows to carry out accurate surveys in a short period of time, as well as to perform a number of unique and specific diagnostic tests.

Recently, the demand for toxicological laboratory diagnosis has increased. For making it more accurate and more complete, the introduction of new tests is going on in laboratory. Those investigations are usually carried out by urgent instruction, which requires strip-tests. In order to affirm or to exclude the assessment of initial data, the sample is examined by the chromatographic method.

During the year foreign students are examined against malaria and HIV in the laboratory.
