Diagnosis of bacterial diseases

These can be diagnosed simply with a basic stain or the more specific Gram or Ziehl Neelsen stains.

Samples of suspect matter can be inoculated onto general-purpose blood-based culture media or onto the more highly-specific media required to isolate and identify individual species of bacteria (Shieh, SKDM2, etc.).

The Biolog system can be used to assist in identification.

Antibiograms enable us to select the best antibiotic to use.
