Since 1996 the Institute for Virology provided diagnostic services for Institutes and Hospitals of the Faculty for Veterinary Medicine as well as for veterinarians, public charities and companies from all over the world. Since 2015 diagnostic tests are performed by the Viro Vet Diagnostik Ltd. (managing director Prof. Dr. F. Weber).
The analyses offered are accredited by the German Accredidation Body (Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle DAkkS) and cover a wide spectrum of companion and livestock animals’ viruses (see Range of offered tests). Focuses of the lab diagnostics are antibody titer determinations, e.g. against Rabies virus (see Rabies antibody test) and virus detection. Besides the routine diagnostics we are performing various research projects. Our diagnostic tests are constantly validated and improved.
