Expertise in Parasitology

We are have a great expertise in diagnosing a variety of parasites. Our focus is on protozoa and helminths from tropical countries. We also test for virus infections such as dengue fever or examine patient samples for a possible microspore infestation. We receive samples from all over Switzerland and, in the case of very rare parasitoses, also serum samples from all over the world. We guarantee standardized measurement conditions and thus reproducible and precise results. We are constantly striving to improve and renew our methods of detection.
