Laboratory for Diagnosis, Histo- and Cytopathology of Arthropod Diseases
To all people working with arthropods and their pathogens with special reference to members of the Society for Invertebrate Pathology!
Here we want to introduce our Laboratory for Diagnosis, Histo- and Cytopathology of Arthropod Diseases.
Since 1957, a diagnostic laboratory for any kind of diseased arthropods is established at our Institute. We are interested in finding new arthropod pathogens suitable for biological or integrated control.
If you have problems with arthropod rearings or if you find diseased or suspicious arthropods in the field, you can send them directly to our laboratory under the following address:
