​Stellenbosch University Immunology Research Group​


Facilities

Our facilities include basic immunology laboratories, tissue culture facilities, Bio-Safety Level 3 laboratories and flow cytometry facilities (sorting in BSL3 and dedicated FACS-lab), while we also have access to a specialized protein laboratory.

The specialist team of Stellenbosch University Immunology Research Group Laboratory scientists and technicians has been working together for almost a decade. We are an accomplished group dedicated to the performance of laboratory tests and procedures with accuracy and proficiency with guaranteed quality assurance. In this regard, the Stellenbosch University Immunology Research Group Laboratory is equipped with the latest technology, instrumentation and standards that meet international regulatory requirements. Our application for accreditation at the South African National Accreditation Services (SANAS), which is a member of the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), commenced in 2011 and we received full accreditation in August 2012 (ISO15189 accredited).

All procedures involving human peripheral blood isolation and storage, enzyme linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs), high throughput multiplexing and tuberculosis (TB) diagnostic tests (Interferon Gamma Release Assays) is subject to our quality assurance program. Our expertise in these areas has grown from our long running association with the Department of Biomedical Sciences, Division Molecular Biology and Human Genetics at Stellenbosch University, where we are based. 

Protocols have been developed to help customers understand the services offered, to facilitate easy handling and shipping of supplies and samples in a timely manner, at affordable and competitive pricing.
