Medical Microbiology – a field of science learning microorganisms causing human diseases. Microbiological Laboratory performs parasitological, bacteriological, mycological and virological examinations.
Our Laboratory is supplied by Vitek-2 Compact, Vitek-Ms, Bact/Alert and BioFire automated systems. The laboratory equipped with Zeiss microscopes offering perfect solutions for research, education and clinical routine. Cultivation is made on the medium of the company BioMerieux and BD-Diagnostics, which is one of the leading in the field of microbiology.
Vitek-2 compact device can perform identification and antibiotic susceptibility of approximately 300 bacterial and mycological species in 5-8 hours.
Simultaneously 192 isolates can be examined (in 10 minutes) by Vitek MS. Vitek MS is an automated mass spectrometry microbial identification system that uses Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Time-of-Flight (MALDI-TOFF) technology.
Bact/Alert 3 D system is used for detection of microorganism in blood and sterile body fluids and gives in maximum in 5 days.
In urgent situations BioFire is a perfect solution as it makes possible detection of pathogens directly from specimen without performing cultivation.
In our laboratory we also use method indirect immunofluorescence to identify a wide range of Autoimmune Diseases.
Indirect immunofluorescence – a method based on the use of monoclonal antibodies labeled with fluorochrome, with an assessment of the results of taking into account the specific glow of cells in luminescent microscopy.Through to the high-precision Axio Scope A1 microscope from the company Zeizz (Germany), we obtain reliable and accurate results.
