TATAA biocenter contributed to the highly cited MIQE guidelines and provides digital PCR service to our GMP Laboratory for correct determination of microbe concentration in control materials.

Who are we?

For over 100 years, Statens Serum Institut (SSI) has been performing diagnostics for the Danish population. The Department of Virus & Microbiological Special Diagnostics handles serious epidemics like SARS/MERS and Ebola, and performs more than 200 different analyses for human pathogenic microorganisms, spanning virus, bacteria, parasites and fungi.

A long history of ISO 17025 certification has assured continuous upgrades in quality control through DANAK inspections. Participation in external quality control programs and the use of WHO-standards ensures assays that have highest possible sensitivity and specificity.

The diagnostic methods used today includes a wide spectrum of molecular, immunological and cultivation techniques including big-data Technologies like Next Generation Sequencing and Microarray.
