The laboratory offers the following investigations: Detection, identification, typing and susceptibility testing of class III biological safety bacteria, fastidious and difficult-to-grow microbes.
We use a broad range of microbiological methods including microscopy, culture, antigen/antibody detection, various PCR methods, and the use of laboratory mice.
Typing can be performed on selected bacteria by use of either phenotypic or molecular techniques Susceptibility testing (EUCAST) is done by disc diffusion or MIC methods (Etest and micro-broth dilution).
