The main goal of the NICA/MPD facility is a study of the properties of hot and dense baryonic matter. One of the possible ways of doing this is to study strangeness production in nuclear collisions. The enhanced production of strange particles in heavy-ion collisions is considered to be a signal for the quark-gluon plasma formation. In this paper the MPD detector abilities to measure different hypernuclei species in Au+Au collisions at NICA energy region are presented.
