Clinical Microbiology

Clinical Microbiology is the study of microorganisms and serves as the primary resource for testing for infectious diseases. American Hospital Dubai’s Laboratory offers comprehensive microbiology testing services, covering areas like bacteriology, mycology, parasitology, virology, and mycobacteriology.

We accept an array of specimen types from our partner healthcare providers, including sputum, saliva, CSF, urine, stool, and wounds.

Our skilled team conducts tests to isolate and identify pathogens through culture methods and analysis of infectious agents in the samples. We also perform a sensitivity analysis to guide medication choices to eliminate the identified pathogens.

Testing Includes
o Respiratory cultures
o Genital cultures
o Blood cultures
o Fungal cultures (SKIN, NAIL, HAIR etc.)
o Rapid antigen testing (Streptococcus group A antigen, Influenza etc.)
o Identification of parasites
o Mycobacterial culture
