Functions and tasks

Develop programs, projects, research plans and transfer techniques related to bacteriology, served for the development of livestock husbandry and aquaculture.

Conduct research and transfer techniques on:

Bacterial diseases in cattle, poultry and aquatic animals

Research and produce vaccines and bio-substances.

Transfer advanced techniques of disease control procedures.

Conduct programs and projects with Vietnamese and international organizations and individuals, and

Provide training courses for staff members, technicians and workers on veterinary microorganisms.

Produce prevention vaccines against bacterial diseases in livestock.

Scientific and technological research activities

Many of the highly qualified staff members of the Department were professionally trained in other countries such as Belgium, Italia, and Australia.  So far the Bacteriology Department has conducted a variety of research as follows:

Research and successful production of the divalent attenuated vaccine which simultaneously provides protection from the swine diseases of paratyphus and haemorrhagic septicaemia. This product has been distributed nationwide, and is highly appreciated by farmers.

Research on epidemiology and pathology of diseases caused by bacteria, such as: E. coli, Salmonella, Clostridium perpringens, Pasteurella haemolytica, Haemophilus somnus, Staphylococcus sp and Streptococcus sp., Leptospira.

The research results have been used by the Institute to produce  a variety of vaccines including an Edema vaccine, a Paratyphoid and Haemorrhagic Septicaemia vaccine for swine, an emulsion haemorrhagic septicaemia vaccine for cattle, an inactivated toxin vaccine against enteritis and a diarrhea disease caused by Clostridium perfringens type D.



Function and tasks

Research and produce viral vaccines and bio-substances;

Transfer advanced techniques on disease control procedures;

Conduct programs and cooperation projects on viral diseases in cattle, poultry with domestic and international organizations and individuals;

Provide training courses on veterinary microorganisms for staff members, technicians and workers.

Scientific research activities

Being a specialized division  on virus and viral diseases in cattle and poultry, since the establishment, the Virology Department has attained remarkable research accomplishments as follows:

1. Research pertaining to the epidemiological characteristics of the disease, Bovine Malignant Catarrhal Fever, along with the development of a treatment and prevention programme in Central Vietnam.

Research that has identifed the role of Porcine parvovirus as an agent in reproductive disorders in pigs in Central Vietnam. This study also isolated types of virus and used for vaccine production.

Survey on the infection of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) virus in pigs in Central coastal provinces of Vietnam, using ELISA method.

Beside that, there are many research results on viral diseases in livestock have been publish in local and international journals
