This module covers the principles and techniques of
medical microbiology laboratory investigations, which aid
clinicians in the diagnosis of diseases and the monitoring
of patients’ progress with treatments. Through hands
on experience, students are exposed to techniques in
cultivation, isolation and identification of pathogens in
routine clinical laboratories. The aim of this module is to
give students an overview of the investigation techniques
employed by the medical microbiology laboratory, as
well as the rationale behind these tests. Students also
learn about good laboratory practices, as well as record
keeping, literature reading, specimen analysis, results
interpretation, and presentation.
