This section has a state-of-the-art, Biosafety Level III Facility. We are using fully automated system: MGIT960 for TB Culture, identification and sensitivity testing in addition to manual culture technique to enhance testing proficiency and to decrease turnaround time. The BACTEC MGIT 960 System is the mycobacteria testing instruments from Becton Dickinson (BD). The BACTEC 960 instrument is an automated system that exploits the fluorescence of an oxygen sensor to detect growth of mycobacteria in culture. It is specially designed to accommodate Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tube (MGIT) and incubate them at 37°C.
All routine C/S testing of, Blood, Urine, Fluids, Wound Swab,API uses for bacterial identification, Air sampling and testing, Water testing Skin and nail scraping for;
LD bodies Fungal hyphae, Fungus C/S, CSF R/E, C/S and direct antigen test.
