Microbiology testing service by experienced pathologists

Microbiology

We offer a reliable, accurate service in bacteriology and mycology. We integrate our microbiology findings with the results of other test modalities (including cytology and histopathology) when these are submitted concurrently. We offer comments on likely significance of isolates and tailor our selection of bacterial antibiotic sensitivity testing specific to the isolate, site of infection and clinical history including prior or current antibiotic treatments. We have a wide selection of antibiotics available for testing against bacterial isolates. MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is of increasing concern, and we routinely check all Staphylococcus aureus isolates for methicillin resistance. We can also test for extended spectrum beta lactamases (ESBLs) in the bacterial species currently known to have demonstrated an ability to express this phenotype.
