Infectiology platform


The PLATIN-OI technical platform was designed to implement the most modern techniques, ranging from cell culture to insect manipulation, viral production, and animal model experimentation, in a high-security controlled lab environnment. Its purpose is to meet the legal and technical requirements for handling Class 3 viral pathogens hazardous to the environment or public health. PLATIN-OI is perfectly suited for studying vector-borne diseases and allows for experimentation on the entire transmission chain of arboviruses (Zika, Dengue). Safety, versatility, and scalability guided the design of PLATIN-OI, for which numerous equipments were specifically designed. This technical platform of the University of La Réunion was funded by FEDER funds (Europe, Region, State).
