Department of Laboratory Services - Microbiology

From the time of its inception on November 12th, 1991, the Department of Microbiology has grown rapidly. The hospital microbiology department encompasses routine diagnostic microbiology divisions namely Bacteriology, Mycobacteriology, Mycology, Serology and Surveillance.

New fully automated ELISA work station inaugurated

Bacteriology/Mycobateriology/Mycology
Recently this section has been upgraded with BACT/ALERT-3D (Automated continuous monitoring blood culture system) and VITEK-2 (A fully automated Bacterial Identification and Antimicrobial susceptibility system). Special staining procedures Zeihl-Neelsen-(Z-N), Auramine-Rhodamine (A-R) method (fluorescent technique). Culture and isolation of fungus from various clinical specimens is done here including corneal scrapings is done by calcoflour white staining technique.

Serology
 The special serological tests for detection for HBs Ag, Anti HIV-1/HIV-2 antibodies, Anti HCV antibodies by ELISA method,( testing done fully automated EVOLIS machine.)
Simple serological tests, like ASO, CRP, RA, WIDAL for enteric fever, RPR for Syphilis,Dengue.

Surveillance/Hospital Acquired Infection

  • As part of surveillance, antibiograms are generated. Surveillance of Operation Theatre complexes is done. Water analysis of different water sources of our hospital and sister Institutes. Surveillance of autoclaves and ethylene oxide (ETO) gas. Preoperative screening of nasal swabs for MRSA from patients has also been introduced.
  • HAI – Infections, trends, prevention protocols are discussed and action plans formulated.
