The Diagnostic Molecular Microbiology Research Group works within all parts of clinical microbiology including bacteriology, virology, parasitology, and infection control. Much of the development and research work arises from current and local issues. The group works with a strong translational aim, as new discoveries are rapidly transformed into practical clinical diagnostics for the benefit of effective diagnosis and treatment of patients.
The rapid medical diagnostic kits market is experiencing impressive growth globally because of the continuous increase in demand for preventive management of infectious diseases. Since its introduction, rapid medical diagnostic kits are becoming a vital part of the medical diagnostics industry and the scope of this market has been perpetually increasing in terms of detectable diseases and adoption by end users. In the global scenario, rapid, affordable, easy to use, high quality diagnostics kits are in great demand.
- To develop and use DNA and RNA-based tests for the detection and characterization of disease-causing microorganisms.
- To innovate and introduce diagnostic laboratory or medical devices.
- To instil knowledge about the use of molecular technologies for laboratory diagnosis and management of infections to the public.
