The main scientific activities:
Microbiological assessment of the environmental objects (different types of water, ambient air, indoor air), food, special purpose products, products of cosmetic-and-perfumery industry, pharmaceuticals and medical devices;
Study of the antimicrobial activity of nanomaterials;
Study of the specific activity of disinfectants and antiseptics, etc.

The most significant achievements of the Laboratory
The researchers of the Laboratory
laid down the foundations of sanitary virology that contributed to the development of this field of science not only in Ukraine but abroad; studied a proliferation, survival and resistance of enteroviruses, bacteriophages, and sanitary-and-indicative bacteria in different objects of the environment;
proved sanitary-and-indicative value of enterococci, salmonella pathogens, efficiency of waste water treatment from the pathogenic bacteria on the model of salmonellas;
determined the changes in the ratio of physiological groups of microorganisms under effect of radionuclides;
evaluated and introduced into the practice of work the European standards for the determination of the specific effect of disinfectants;
proveded the prospects of the use of nanomaterials for the production of the new antimicrobial agents;
studied a role of microscopic fungi in the contamination of the environmental objects; special attention was paid to the study of the degree of fungi dissemination of the air and surfaces of residential and public buildings;
improved the normative base on the environmental hygiene owing to the inclusion of the microbiological indices.
