Topic of the Month April: Infectious diseases

Dear Sir or Madam,

Pathogens are everywhere and it is hardly possible to evade them. However, this can lead to problems, particularly in hospitals, since there are many immune-deficient people. Good hospital hygiene is important here. In addition, further research is needed. New antibiotics, faster diagnostics and the latest medical technology are urgently needed. Find out more in our Topic of the Month April "Infectious diseases – the laboratory races pathogens".

Have a wonderful day!

Infectious diseases come unnoticed and can have severe consequences. Prevention through good hygiene is the best protection for people in hospitals. This is especially necessary for weakened patients whose immune systems are not able to fight back the infections by themselves. When they still fall ill, physicians need to be quick to diagnose and treat them. Learn in our Topic of the Month, which role modern laboratory medicine plays here today.

It allows people with retinitis pigmentosa to perceive light and improve orientation.
