Clinical Microbiology section of Karimi Medical Complex Clinical Laboratory deals with the isolation and identification of microorganisms (bacteria and fungi) from specimens like blood, urine, wound swabs, faces, respiratory secretions and other body fluids e.g. cerebrospinal fluid. Isolates of clinical importance are identified and, if appropriate, tested for susceptibility to antibiotics and antifungal drugs. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing is performed as per specific guidelines by expert technologists. Direct microscopy is also carried out on specimens to examine CSF for bacteria, faces for parasites, and urine for cells and crystals. Different disciplines of microbiology like bacteriology, serology, mycology and parasitology are covered in this section.
Our lab is furnished with state-of-the-art equipment like Bactec9050 the BACTEC blood culture system is a fully automated microbiology growth and detection system designed to detect microbial growth from blood specimens.
