We are proud to offer a wide choice of technological services, based on our knowledge gathered in the framework of research grants and research contracts with companies:

  • Parasitological survey of aquaculture facilities
  • Diagnostic and consulting on parasite-derived diseases in fisheries and aquaculture
  • Consulting on zoonotic parasitosis
  • Life cycle studies of fish parasites and design of preventive and curative approaches
  • Antiparasitic assays for specific fish parasites (in vitro and in vivo)
  • Specific and sensitive PCR assays for the detection of enteric myxosporeans (Enteromyxum leei and E. scophthalmi)
  • Development of specific diagnostic test for other parasites
  • Evaluation of the effects of different feed formulations and additives on fish health and disease susceptibility

How does it work?

  • We can just invoice you for specific works or sign wider contracts of research collaboration for longer assessment or diagnostic projects.
  • We can collaborate with other research groups for virus and bacteria diagnostic.
  • We offer possibilities of collaboration both to academic researchers and companies through transnational access (TNA) with the project AQUAEXCEL 2020.
