The main activity of the Microbiology unit is the diagnosis of infectious diseases through the identification of the causing agent in the samples collected from the animal.

The culture and identification of the pathogen and the selection of antibiotics to be tested taking into account the animal species studied to optimize antibiotic treatment and increased therapy success.

Microscopic techniques, by staining or direct visualization, allow a fast process.

The scope of this Unit includes the parasite samples such as blood, feces, exudates, etc, with specific techniques for each parasite species.

Moreover, this unit assists in studies designed to determine the bacterial flora existing in specific biological samples.
