The Bacteriology laboratory utilizes culture techniques to cultivate and identify bacterial and fungal pathogens from a variety of sample sources. Susceptibility testing may be performed to determine which antibiotics are most appropriate for treatment. Further characterization/typing of Clostridium perfringens, Campylobacter sp., Escherichia coli and Moraxella sp. isolates can also be performed in conjunction with the molecular diagnostics section.
