are among the units in which all medical units operate in collaboration with health institutions. Various diagnostic procedures in microbiology laboratories are used for all levels of treatment and follow-up, in particular the diagnosis of diseases. There are Mycology, Bacteriology,
Immunology-Serology and Virology Laboratories
in our microbiology laboratories. In addition to blood cultures, cerebrospinal fluid, joint fluid, intra-abdominal aspiration, urine, wound, respiratory tract and stool samples, stained and direct microscopic analyses of the samples can also be performed. An antibiotic susceptibility analysis is carried out in the same method by naming a microorganism that grows with automated bacteria recognition systems.
In our microbiology laboratories, some of the most common microbiological tests that result on the same day or in a short time with our advanced technology equipment are:
is one of the most significant factors in liver inflammation that is normal in our country and around the world. This virus, which can be transmitted by blood, blood products, the use of non-sterile or contaminated needles and medical instruments, body fluids and unprotected sexual intercourse, can cause acute or chronic development of hepatitis.
Like the Hepatitis B virus, another hepatitis C virus that can be transmitted by blood and blood products, the use of non-sterilized medical devices, unprotected sexual contact is called Hepatitis C. The Hepatitis C virus, which is considered to play an important role in the development of liver failure, is an important microbiological agent affecting approximately 70 million people worldwide.
Serological tests used in the diagnosis of infectious diseases and in general immune system scans of patients are predominantly diagnostic tests focused on the investigation of antigen interactions in the body with particular antibodies. These tests, which are commonly used in the diagnosis of hepatitis and similar infections spread by different means, are conducted to examine whether the body develops antibodies to bacteria, viruses or parasites and thereby to assess the presence of the infection in the body.
Human Immunodeficiency Virus or HIV virus with its abbreviation; it is a very dangerous microbiological agent that can contribute to the deficiency and breakdown of the human immune system and over time, can cause AIDS to be the most advanced stage of the disease. Sexual intercourse, breastfeeding and blood are the most important means of transmission.
Hepatitis A virus is another virus that can be spread by the ingestion of food and water prepared with feces, by the consumption of food and water prepared with dirty hands, by the hygiene of the toilet and by not paying attention to hand washing and causing significant infection in the liver.
Toxoplasma infection, which occurs with the introduction into the human body of a parasite called toxoplasma gondi, is typically transmitted by the meat of animals carrying a parasite that is not well cooked.
