New laboratories of the National Veterinary Research Institute opened

New laboratories of the National Veterinary Research Institute opened

Up-to-date new laboratories were symbolically opened by Bronisław Komorowski, the Speaker of the Sejm of Republic of Poland, and Francois Barry Delongchamps, the Ambassador of France, on November 18, 2008. The ceremony was graced also with representatives of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, central veterinary administration, regional veterinary officers, representatives of Veterinary Medicine Faculties, local administration, and guests from Ukraine, Lithuania, United States, and France.

Opening ceremony was preceded by an occasional conference at which Professor Jan F. Żmudzinski, Deputy Director for Research, presented the main trends in the investigations carried out in the Institute.

After the conference, the guests visited five modern laboratory annexes where diagnostic examinations of animal infectious diseases and investigations on food and feed safety are conducted. In multifunctional annex, there are laboratories of CL2, CL3, and CL3+ classes of security, ensuring full protection of people and environment against pathogenic organisms, isolated facilities for experimental animals, rooms for necropsy examinations, and installation for waste utilisation.

The laboratories were designed by British-Ireland Consortium: Project Management and Architon Groups, and built by the LSMW company from Germany. The entire area of the laboratories is approximately 27,000 m2. The cost of the investment was about 50 million euros.

The new laboratories are of great importance for the Institute, because it acts as the National Reference Laboratory for diagnosis of infectious diseases and monitoring of harmful microorganisms and residues of xenobiotics in food of animal origin and feeds. Thanks to the investment, the Institute became one of the newest veterinary scientific institution and according to the opinion of many experts Institute's laboratory complex is the most up-to-date in the EU.
