Molecular Diagnostics

The activities of Molecular Diagnostics reach from applied research topics and technological development to molecular diagnostic expertise and services provided within the Swiss TPH and externally. The scientific tasks of the service side are shaped in close collaboration with the medical personnel from the Swiss TPH Medical Department. In addition, new tools are developed for diagnosis at both the individual and population level. Training and technology transfer are provided within collaborative projects with a number of less developed countries.


The Molecular Diagnostics Unit is closely interwoven with the Molecular Parasitology and Epidemiology Unit with shared staff and publications.
