The clinical microbiology laboratory is a full-service routine and specialized reference laboratory. They test diverse specimens from patients to detect a wide range of human pathogens that are, or may be, a cause of the illness. Their role is also to provide information about the in vitro activity of antimicrobial drug against the microorganisms identified.
Each year, researchers perform about:
- 350.000 cultures or analyses from more or less 130.000 clinical specimens
- Thousands of clinical and therapeutic advices
- 250 clinical rounds with the infectious diseases specialists of the university hospital
- 3.000 cultures with identification for microbiological quality assessment from environmental samples
As a national reference laboratory for AIDS, Streptococcus agalactiae, Vibrio cholerae /parahaemolyticus and mycosis/fungi since 90’s, we perform epidemiological surveillances at national and international levels. The laboratory has extensive experience in developing, conducting and interpreting tests for patients with infectious diseases and for those prone to infections, such as immunocompromised, cancer and AIDS patients.
Most of our laboratories are biosafety level 2 and we established biosafety level 3 facilities for mycobacteriology and AIDS reference laboratory.
