The microbiology department of Citi Lab and Research Centre provides complete clinical services including diagnosis and prevention of infectious diseases. Several techniques like microscopy, isolation, detection of antimicrobial selectivity testing are exercised, searching for the presence of potentially pathogenic microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and parasites. Antimicrobial susceptibility tests are executed on isolates to identify the most appropriate antibiotic for treating an infection.
The laboratory is completely equipped with automated systems for blood culture and mycobacterium culture. Bacterial determination and antimicrobial susceptibility are also carried out by internationally accepted systems shortening the turnaround time for reporting. Quality control and quality assurance are absolutely preference in the lab.
