Various working groups investigate highly infectious viruses and bacteria as well as biotoxins. All these biological agents display a high potential to cause severe disease outbreaks or to be misused as biological warfare.
The Division of Technical Development Diagnostics and Platforms takes the research results and translates them into validated, reproducible and accessible diagnostic products that meet the requirements of the Medical Devices Act. The product range includes molecular biological, immunological and cell biological application. The newly developed products will directly be utilised in the medical B reconnaissance.
In addition, the Division of Technical Development Diagnostics and Platforms tests commercial products and evaluates their technical applicability for the Bundeswehr as well as offers technical support for research and development commissions.
