The Virus Diagnostics Division of IAV  offers diagnostic services to detect a wide  spectrum of viral diseases, both acute and chronic. We offer targeted tests, followed up by broader diagnostic algorithms based on a syndromic approach, as and when required. In order to support this, we have implemented more than 60 viral parameters. Our facility will identify viral illnesses of regional and global significance (E.g.: Vector-Borne Disease Viruses; Viruses transmitted by respiratory route, by intestinal route, by body fluids ; Acute encephalitis syndrome causing viruses,  zoonotic disease viruses and viruses of travel & tourism significance ). The results are routinely communicated to treating clinician under intimation to state and district health officials. The division will collaborate closely with the health department of the state to deliver early treatment by timely diagnosis; early detection of outbreaks and implementation of effective control measures. Our aim is to help strengthening the public health system and pandemic preparedness of the state by effective surveillance and detection of emerging and re-emerging viruses Our facility is also equipped to conduct a variety of scientific activities, including virus outbreak investigations, molecular epidemiology research, development of diagnostic kits, advanced virus diagnostic training and medical virology research in collaboration  with clinical departments of medical colleges and other research centres.
