SERVICES

A quality orientated service for diagnosis and monitoring of BBV has been established at IVVI NIHE. The laboratory offers a full serological and molecular diagnostic menu for investigations of BBV infections.


The focus of IVVI is on cost effective, sustainable assay solutions and development of in house molecular assays is an essential component of the programme. All tests both commercial and in-house tests are accredited to ISO 15189 standards. HIV-1 DRM assays are also accredited by the National Reference Laboratory (NRL) Australia TAQAS scheme and currently being evaluated by WHO for accreditation.


Continuous “twining” with UCD NVRL ensures the diagnostic service is supported and aligned with best practice in Europe.

Advice on sample collection, preparation and transport to the laboratory is available by contacting Dr. Lan Anh Nguyen
