The Department is accredited in accordance with the requirements of DSTU EN ISO/IEC 17025:2019 on indicators of diagnosis of infectious diseases and diseases of non-communicable aetiology of animals, poultry and fish. Tests are carried out by generally accepted pathomorphological methods (pathoanatomical, histological) and immunohistochemical, analytical, and express methods (immunographic, Western blot, enzymatic immunoadsorption and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay), determination of the tetracycline biomarker in the teeth of wild carnivores (by luminescent microscopy) upon citizens’ request, in the framework of state monitoring.
Tests of feeds and compound feeds for animals using analytical method, which makes it possible to detect the presence of components of animal origin (down, feathers, bones) in feed samples, to identify meat, blood, feather or fish meal from meat and bone . The advantage of the method is the ability to detect a meager number of components of animal origin (less than 0.1%), depending on the origin of these components (very important for forensic veterinary examination).
Research Pathomorphological Department is accredited as a provider of proficiency testing in accordance with DSTU EN ISO/IEC 17043:2017. It organizes and conducts interlaboratory comparative tests to verify the qualification “VET-TEST”.
