Microbiology

Microbiology provides a full range of testing for bacterial and fungal culture, as well as the antibiotic sensitivity of pathogenic (infectious) organisms. This includes those that can cause urinary, respiratory, gastrointestinal, wound or skin infections, and meningitis.

We screen for a number of organisms that can cause cross-infection problems for hospitals, such as MRSA and Clostridium difficile (C. diff). We also perform intestinal parasite identification, testing for tuberculosis and screening for genitourinary infections, including chlamydia and gonorrhoea.

The department uses state-of-the-art molecular technology, enabling real-time, random access for diagnosis of C. diff, TB, chlamydia/gonorrhoea and other infections within 70 minutes of samples being placed onto the analyser.
