  • Research Experience:
  1. Well acquainted with the skilled handling of Biohazard level III pathogens like Coxiella burnetii. I have developed expertise in the standardization and application of molecular tests like trans-PCR, real-time PCR, multiplex PCR as well as serological tests like ELISA, IFA, MAT, CAT for the rapid and reliable diagnosis of important zoonotic diseases, particularly Q fever, listeriosis and toxoplasmosis.
  2. Developed – a protocol for quantitative real-time PCR assay for detection and quantification of C. burnetii in clinical samples (viz. placenta, vaginal swab, fecal swab, milk and urine) during my Ph.D. research work.
  3. Optimized – the different conditions for Trans-PCR assay for the detection of C. burnetii in clinical samples with a view to attain the desired level of sensitivity and specificity of the assay. Besides using the standard antigens in the test protocols and commercial kits of ELISA and IFA for serological investigations of Q fever in man and animals, two antigens were also prepared indigenously from the C. burnetii isolates recovered in the study, and used in the serological tests namely CAT and IFA.
  4. d.     In M.V.Sc. research work, identified and isolated the various spoilage and pathogenic microorganisms (viz. Staphylococcus.aureus, S. epidermidis, Micrococcus, Enterococci, Bacillus cereus, B. subtilis, B. coagulans, B. circulans, Clostridium spp., Faecal coliforms, E.coli, Proteus vulgaris, P. mirabilis, Klebsiella aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Salmonella spp.) from poultry carcasses and slaughterhouse points. Assessed the microbiological hazards at different points in poultry slaughter and processing operations and suggested CCPs for implementation.in organized and unorganized (retail outlets) sectors.
