The diagnostic spectrum of the clinical immunological laboratory encompasses the areas autoimmune diagnostics, infectious serology, serological allergy diagnostics and molecular genetics.
The following techniques are mainly used: indirect immunofluorescence, enzyme immunotests, luminescence immunotests, radioimmunoassays (RIA) and microarrays.

Autoimmune diseases are the third most frequent form of disease in the industrialised world. The immune system turns against its own organism and produces autoantibodies. These can be detected in bodily fluids, allowing diagnosis of particular diseases.
Autoimmune diagnostics have been one of our core competencies from the start. We focus on a triad of research, development and application of diagnostic tests. In close cooperation with EUROIMMUN AG, we constantly introduce better and more differentiated test systems for the benefit of patients.
In recent years there have been exciting developments in the area of designer antigens. These have led to new possibilities in cell-based assays based on BIOCHIP technology.
The areas of neurology (especially differential diagnosis of tumour-associated encephalitis) and dermatology (blister-inducing skin diseases) have profited in particular from these developments. Significant advances have also been made in diagnostics for rheumatic diseases. Today, over 100 different cell-nuclear antibodies can be rapidly and reliably differentiated.
