The Laboratory for Viruses and Molecular Biology is an integral part of the AIDS Center
at the hospital. This laboratory performs as much as one third of the total number of tests carried out in Israel to detect carriers of the AIDS causing virus (HIV). Furthermore, it is one of only two of its kind in the country, which performs molecular tests aimed to determine whether the HIV virus of patients is resistant to antiviral drug treatment.
The laboratory is also highly experienced in the development and implementation of molecular diagnostic assays for various infectious diseases.
