Microbiology

Microbiology services refer to the identification, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of infectious diseases. This is achieved by using specialized services such as microscopy, isolation and tissue culture. The tests and investigations seek to identify and isolate pathogenic microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites. We also perform antimicrobial susceptibility tests on patients who have been quarantined to identify the most appropriate antibiotic for treating an infection.

Our labs at Lucid are equipped with blood culture and mycobacterium culture systems as well as protocols for bacterial determination and antimicrobial susceptibility. The laboratories carry out quality control protocols and quality assurance tests to remain at the cutting edge of microbiology services.
