The diagnostic unit of the Institute of Virology is the national reference laboratory for various herpes- and coronaviruses in animals. In addition, it offers diagnostic testing of a wide range of veterinary relevant viruses. Concerning coronaviruses we offer several diagnostic assays for various animal species, including a pancorona RT-PCR, real-time RT-PCR for TGEV and PEDV in pigs as well as real-time RT-PCR for ruminant and equine coronaviruses. Detailed information and the whole diagnostic offer can be found here Diagnostics. Also, we offer the joint use of our FACS machine. For more information see FACS.
