The following studies are carried out in the laboratory:

  1. Enzyme immunoassay for:

– markers of endothelial dysfunction;

– interleukins content in the serum of patients;

– cryptosporidium in the patients with HIV/AIDS, etc.

  1. Determination of indicators of cellular and humoral immunity by ELISA.
  2. Determination of markers of endotoxicosis and immunotoxicosis.
  3. Biochemical studies of functional status of the liver (AsAT, AlAT, alkaline phosphatase, γ-glutamine-transpeptidase, thymol test, etc.).

For conducting these studies the laboratory is equipped with: a photoelectric enzyme immunoassay analyser AIF-C-01C, an enzyme immunoassay analyser Sunraise with Magellan-4 program, a spectrophotometer SF-26, KFK-2-UHL-4.2, a universal ionomer EV-74, centrifuges, thermostats, an aquadistiller DE-4.2, a apothecary balance, a torsion balance, an electronic laboratory balance, etc..
