→ Detection and to-genera or to-species identification of bacteria present in plant material, soil or propagated on culture media. We use molecular, immunological and biochemical methods for this purpose.
→ antiviral and antibacterial activity studies: e.g. virucidal activity of disinfectants and antiseptics, virucidal testing of textile products, non-porous surfaces, filters and aerosols, cytotoxicity testing of liquids and solids (tests: Resazurin Cell Viability or MTT Cell Viability Assays)
Our specialists will help you to choose the most optimal method, and you will receive the results in the form of a detailed report covering the entire research process.
The virucidal tests we perform are based on the following standards:
ISO 18184: 2019 Textiles Determination of antiviral activity of textile
ISO 21702: 2019 Measurement of antiviral activity on plastics and other non-porous surfaces products.
PN-EN 14476 + A2: 2019-08 (EN 14476: 2013 + A2: 2019) Chemical disinfectants and antiseptics. Quantitative suspension method for the determination of virucidal activity in the medical field.
PN-EN 16777: 2019-01 (EN 16777: 2018) Chemical disinfectants and antiseptics. Quantitative surface method to determine the virucidal activity of chemical disinfectants used in the medical field on non-porous surfaces, without mechanical action.
PN-EN 17111: 2018-12 (EN 17111: 2018) Chemical disinfectants and antiseptics. Quantitative carrier method for the determination of virucidal activity for tools used in the medical field.
PN-EN 14675: 2015 Chemical disinfectants and antiseptics – Quantitative suspension method for the determination of the virucidal effect of chemical disinfectants and antiseptics used in the veterinary field.
Depending on the needs, we can use model viral strains such as:
Poliovirus type 1, Murine norovirus, Adenovirus type 5, Vaccinia virus, Bovine herpesvirus Type 1, Bovine enterovirus Type 1, Influenza A virus (H3N2), Feline calicivirus
→ Analyses of genetic biodiversity within a species (e.g. with the use of multiplex PCR, RAPD, PCR-RFLP)
→ Phylogenetic analyses based on the sequences of house-keeping genes (recA, gyrA, rpoS, dnaX etc)
→ Personalized diagnostic tests tailored to the costumer’s needs
