Microbiology Laboratory

Microbiology is the science that studies small living things, known as microorganisms and usually visible under a microscope.

Some of the microorganisms can also cause diseases in humans. Such as parasites, bacteria, viruses and fungi. By examining these microorganisms in our microbiology laboratory, it is possible to determine what diseases occur in humans.

Diseases caused by these tiny creatures that we cannot see with the naked eye are generally called infections. Thousands of different microorganisms appear as infectious diseases.

Some tests are done to find out what these infections are. Body fluids, urine and stool samples, blood samples, tissue samples are taken from the patients in the laboratory, necessary tests are performed and the diagnosis of the disease is made. Along with the conventional method for microorganism identification, computer programs are also used. As a result of researching some viruses with rapid antigen tests, parasite infection is detected.

Workflow in Microbiology Laboratory:

Making a test request by the authorized physician

Obtaining samples from the patient and barcoding them

After the samples are delivered to the laboratory, they are first examined according to the rejection-acceptance criteria and registered in the laboratory information system with the barcode number.

Examining and processing samples

Analyzing the tests in the device environment that has been maintained and calibrated

Confirmation, reporting and archiving of results.
