The Laboratory for the Development of Molecular Diagnostic Systems was formed in 2016 on the basis of the Laboratory of Structural and Functional Proteomics. In general, the laboratory's projects are aimed at developing diagnostic test systems for identifying a whole range of viral diseases and associated human pathological conditions using modern methods of systemic virology and molecular biology. The laboratory is constantly expanding its range of work and areas of scientific interest.

The main achievements of the laboratory are the development (both independently and in collaboration with other organizations) of

  • Oligonucleotide and protein microchips for analyzing the expression of human cytokines
  • Oligonucleotide and protein microchips for the diagnosis of influenza and other acute respiratory viral infections
  • DNA microchip for detecting human herpes viruses
  • Immunochip for the detection of brucellosis
  • Rapid color-change-indication diagnostics for acute respiratory viral infections
  • Protein microchip for the diagnosis of sepsis and systemic inflammatory response
  • DNA microchip featuring 13 human host polymorphisms which affect influenza severity
