Test3

Laboratories

We support microbiology, immunology and clinical diagnostic labs. There is a sequencing and molecular typing facility, cellular immunology, category 3 laboratories, and an insectary. We have capacity for high-throughput DNA extraction and diagnostic PCR, capillary and next generation sequencing and micro-array work. We conduct cellular immunology using multi-parameter flow cytometry, ELISPOT assays and functional antibody assays. We conduct Liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry for proteomic and metabolomic work. Our developing bioinformatics facility includes provision for local and internationally generated sequence data with computational facilities. All our laboratories are now accredited as GCLP standard facilities.

We have a bioinformatics capacity with dedicated computational facilities
