Bacteriology and Microbiology Testing

Bacteriology testing includes aerobic and anaerobic culture of swabs, fluid, and tissue. Identification of the isolated species is carried out as far as possible. Sensitivity testing is performed on pure isolates. Sensitivity is not run on mixed growths unless a significant species or potential pathogens are present. For blood cultures, please contact us for special culture bottles.

Bacteriology and Microbiology testing also includes Mycology, the analysis of diseases resulting from infections with molds and yeasts.  Mycology services are limited to morphological identifications of routine cultures, and to molecular identifications in the evaluation of urogenital infections.
