Negative stain viral identification

When it comes to viral diagnostics, electron microscopy shines as one of the simplest and fastest methods for localizing and identifying the presence of viral pathogens within a sample. We specialize in isolating and identifying various viral families from diverse sample types such as faeces, extracts, organs, biopsies, and warts.

Ultrastructural pathology

Electron microscopy is among the few techniques capable of identifying specific disease conditions by revealing ultrastructural pathology. We offer diagnostic ultrastructural pathology services for various disease conditions and tissue types.
