Vatreno oko, the national laboratory for molecular detection of infectious agents at the Clinical Center of Serbia, is unique in the region. A key part of the analysis performed in the laboratory relies on two robotic platforms that automatically isolate RNA and DNA and prepare samples for the final phase of analysis, thereby accelerating the flow of samples through the system and issuing results.

Strict laboratory biosafety protocols are unique in the region and were developed in collaboration with Chinese experts who were in Wuhan at the time of the epidemic.

Forty-seven experts from the Serrbias best scientific research institutions have been trained by Chinese colleagues and put their expertise in the function of helping society. The laboratory, which works 24 hours a day, is managed by Dr. Jelena Begović, director of the Institute for Molecular Genetics and Genetic Engineering at the University of Belgrade.
