Bacteriology and Microbiology Testing Laboratory Services

Bacteriology test prices include aerobic and anaerobic culture of swabs, fluid, tissue. Identification of the isolated species is carried out as far as possible. When IDENTIFICATION is stated under a bacteriology test, the API kits are used (available for Staphylococcus sp., Streptococcus sp., Enterobacteriaceae, non-fastidious non-enteric Gram-negative rods, anaerobes, Coryneform bacteria).
 
Sensitivity testing is performed on pure isolates. Sensitivity is not run on mixed growths unless a significant species or potential pathogens are present. The following antimicrobial profiles are included into sensitivity testing:
 
Avian:
Tobramycin, Ceftazidime, Augmentin, Erythromycin, Doxycycline, Enrofloxacin, Clindamycin, Cotrimoxazole
Reptiles:
Amikacin, Augmentin, Ceftazidime, Enrofloxacin, Tobramycin, Oxytetracycline, Piperacillin, Cotrimoxazole
Mammals:
Amoxycillin, Augmentin, Cephalexin, Clindamycin, Enrofloxacin, Oxytetracycline, Streptomycin, Cotrimoxazole
Primates:
Amikacin, Amoxycillin, Augmentin, Cephalexin, Doxycycline, Enrofloxacin, Erythromycin, Cotrimoxazole
 
Metronidazole is added to the profile when an anaerobe is isolated.
 
Our laboratory will supply you with a special culture bottle if you request blood culture.
