The microbiology and molecular biology research laboratories are well equipped to conduct a wide range of routine and specialized tests and investigations. Examples of investigations currently in use include real time and standard PCR, plamid isolation and analysis, bacterial transformation, gene sequencing, phenotypic susceptibilty testing and culture media development and evaluation.
Research has been funded by the Clifford Craig Medical Research Trust.
