Range of services

Microscopic examination of biopsies, punctates, secretions for protozoa and helminths.
Echinococcus granulosus serology.

For parasitological stool examination we recommend sending 3 stool samples from different days. The stool samples for parasitological examinations should be filled into special sample containers with stabiliser (MIF Fixativ) (stool: at least the size of a hazelnut; duodenal juice: at least 1 ml of sediment; 24-h collection urine). Sample containers with stabiliser can be ordered from the Max von Pettenkofer Institute (089/2180-72811).

Attention: MIF solution has a disinfecting effect. For this reason, the prepared sample material is no longer suitable for cultures (e.g. bacteriology).
