We provide professional support in Microbiology.
Microbiology is a branch of science called microorganisms
that studies small creatures, many of which can only be seen under a
microscope. Many of these microorganisms cause diseases in humans. At
the beginning of these; bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites are coming. By
examining these microorganisms in our Microbiology Laboratory, the diseases
that occur in individuals can be determined.
caused by these tiny creatures that we cannot see with the naked eye are
generally called Infectious Diseases (Infectious Diseases). Tens of
thousands of different microorganisms appear as disease agents.
In this unit,
direct and indirect tests are carried out on microorganisms that cause
infection. In the laboratory, guiding tests are performed in the
diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of infectious diseases in blood and all
kinds of body fluids, tissue samples, extracts such as urine and feces and
various other samples. There are bacteriology, virology, mycology, parasitology
and serology departments as subunits.
tests studied in the microbiology laboratory are: Culture tests, bacteria
identification tests, antibiotic and antifungal susceptibility tests,
antibiotic resistance studies, direct microscopic examinations, stained
preparation examinations, search for parasite eggs in feces, antigen screening
tests, antibody tests (serological tests), PCR (Molecular diagnostic tests,
including Polymerized Chain Reaction test
When it comes
to microbiology laboratory, the first thing that comes to mind among these
tests is culture, bacteria identification and antibiotic susceptibility tests. These
tests are carried out in our laboratory using international standards and an
automation system (Micro Scan AS4). With this system, bacteria are defined
more advanced than conventional methods, and information on resistance
mechanisms that cannot be revealed is also obtained. This makes very
important contributions in the treatment of infections. Especially, this
information is very important in dealing with infections caused by multiple
resistant bacteria that cause hospital infections.
It is the identification of bacteria that cause infection
in humans and determination of antibiotic susceptibility. (Typhoid,
cholera, bacteria that cause throat infections, etc.)
Obtaining and identifying fungi that cause disease in humans and
testing their susceptibility to antifungals (fungicides).
Investigation of parasites and parasitic eggs in feces, urine and
some other body fluids.
Diagnostic tests of viruses that cause diseases in humans (HPV
Antibody-based diagnostic method in infectious diseases
