Course description: Sampling / clinical specimens (wound swabs, throat, nasopharyngeal swabs and others,
urine, blood, stool); learn ways of dealing with some clinical material; manufacture of rapid tests
detection of certain bacteria (eg. CSF-causes meningitis), viral (e. RSV, rotary),
parasita, yeasts and molds. Creating, observations and interpretations sensitivity of bacteria
antibiotic (eg. detection of ESBL strains twin disc); introduction to
process monitoring and control of nosocomial infections; biological control of sterilization; processing method
supervisory culture.
Students will participate in microbial processing of biological samples. They will take part in
sampling of biological material, prepare materials for the transportation, receive referrals and biological
samples and process the received samples. During the practical training will rotate through different
departments and meet with microbiological processing of urine, stool, different swab, blood, cerebrospinal fluid and
other samples. You will, under supervision, participate in the serological laboratory and see
preparation and processing of samples in the laboratory of Molecular Microbiology.
Place of: microbiological laboratories in university hospitals.
