Course description: Microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi) cause infections of the digestive, respiratory,
central nervous and sexually-urinary system and congenital infections. nosocomial
infection. Primary sterile clinical materials: blood, cerebrospinal fluid, urine and aspiration.
Primary non-sterile clinical materials: Eliminate skin and mucous stool. Antimicrobials.
Exercise: Taking the clinical material, transportation, storage to seeding on nutrient
substrate or inoculation in living cells (eg. cell culture). methods of direct
bacteriological, mycological, virological and parasitological diagnosis; tests for rapid diagnosis
infectious agents directly from clinical material: latex? agglutination (eg. rotalex, adenolex
), DFA or IFA (eg. For detection of virus in the respiratory tract, the herpes simplex virus), EIA (
eg. for detection of respiratory syncytial virus) and other tests. indirect microbiological
diagnostics for the detection of specific antibodies in the blood of patients: EIA, IFA and others. (eg. proof
IgM antibodies in intrauterine infection rubella or cytomegalovirus,
