The Serology department is concerned with research into and diagnosis of infective diseases, using the commonest serological methods, such as rapid and slow seroagglutination, complement fixation, indirect and competitive ELISA tests, indirect immunofluorescence, immunodiffusion in agar gel and MAT.

The department also conducts rapid tests for identifying prion proteins (BSE and Scrapie) by means of the LIA test, manages the National Serum Bank and performs high-level consultancy work for the Ministry of Health and research for the National Reference Centre for Brucellosis and for the OIE Reference Laboratory for Brucellosis.


In the sphere of the work of the Institute's Reference Centres and Laboratories, the Serology Department organizes, manages and takes part in interlaboratory circuits at national and international level.
