Principles, procedures, techniques, and data interpretation for the isolation and identification of clinically significant organisms from patient specimens.
Upon successful completion of this course, the learner will be able to: • Explain the use of aseptic technique when performing laboratory procedures • Differentiate organisms based on Gram reaction, microscopic and colonial morphology, and biochemical and antigenic characteristics • Perform cultural, biochemical and serologic tests common to the clinical laboratory according to established clinical procedures • Discuss the principle and general procedures involved in each test performed in the microbiology laboratory • Select appropriate media and test procedures according to the patient specimen type • Assess laboratory data to correctly identify organisms in clinical specimens when given the source of the clinical specimen • Explain appropriate quality control procedures when performing laboratory tests • Correlate the laboratory diagnosis of various microorganisms with the infectious disease process • Identify the major organisms for which samples from each of the following body sites are submitted for bacteriologic culture and the type of specimen that should be submitted: a. Urinary tract b. Central Nervous System c. Peripheral blood d. Intestinal tract e. Genital tract f. Throat or nasopharynx g. Lung • Evaluate laboratory data to identify the pathogenic organisms found in samples from each of the following body sites using appropriate clinical procedures: a. Throat b. Urinary tract c. Intestinal tract d. Central Nervous System e. Skin or wounds f. Peripheral blood g. Lung • Perform Quality Control procedures for reagents, media and equipment utilized in the laboratory • Compare and contrast among the organisms identified on the basis of the following criteria: a. Gram stain appearance b. Colonial morphology on the various media inoculated c. Biochemical test results d. Serological test results
