Central Clinical and Diagnostic Laboratory


Irina Khamitova – Head of laboratory,

Phone number: (812) 232-31-55, email: ckdl@pasteurorg.ru

The Laboratory performs a wide range of laboratory tests required for assessing the health status of patients and the monitoring of applied therapy including high-technology examinations and top-class testing.

The staff of the Laboratory includes various specialities: PhDs in biological sciences, researchers, medical specialists and specialists of higher qualification grade.

High-level scientific and technological resources, many years of experience in clinical examinations, as well as modern high-tech equipment allow the laboratory to handle the most sophisticated objectives. The Laboratory practices clinical trials on new medications and conducts scientific and applied research in genetics, molecular biology, microbiology, virology, immunology, and related sciences.

The Laboratory is an active member of the Federal System of External Quality Assessment of Clinical Laboratory Testing. The inter-laboratory quality control is carried out every day. All equipment and materials are registered and certified in the Russian Federation.
