The department of Immunology focuses on all the established autoantibody determinations using indirect immune fluorescence testing, ELISA or immunoblot.

Accoring to the liquor technical qualification certificate of the DGLN, cerebrospinal fluid diagnostics here is carried out to high standards of quality. Furthermore, other immunological tests are performed in this department to assay circulating immune complexes in the serum and tests are carried out as part of immune defect diagnostics, such as quantification of total haemolytic complement activity and IgG sublasses. In addition, other electrophoretic tests are performed such as immune fixation and alkaline phosphatase isoenzyme detection.
