The Clinical Microbiology section provides testing for the broad range of agents that cause infectious diseases. We identify bacteria, mycobacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses by culture, microscopy, antigen or antibody detection and molecular methods. We provide antimicrobial and antifungal susceptibility testing for clinically significant isolates.
Consultation is available daily by a subspecialty-trained clinical microbiologist to help with interpretation of test results or to determine optimal test strategies for diagnosis of infections. The laboratory endeavors to provide the most effective test methodologies for our patient population.
