The new building housed the laboratory of the Institute of Parasitology, study enterovirus, natural focal infections. Here will be held diagnostic and experimental work with microorganisms.
Construction of clinics Far East Regional Center for Prevention and Control of AIDS began in 2010 under the federal target program "Prevention and Control of Social Diseases (2007-2012)."
"The facility meets all the requirements of biosecurity. This means that the staff and the people are fully protected from the spread of strains outside of the Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology. The new building will be able to create a collection of Far Eastern cultures — the causative agents of infectious diseases. Through research, the Institute staff will make recommendations to the public, health care professionals for the treatment of a disease, predict the development of the situation, "- said the Minister of Health Region Alexander Vitko.
The building provides the necessary engineering and technical framework for biosafety, namely tight building envelope constructions, automatic climate control and ventilation with fine filters, special drainage system, collection and treatment of wastewater, biological safety cabinet, collection system, disposal and recycling of waste.
