The Department of Microbiology at Smt. R. B. Shah Mahavir Super Speciality Hospital, SURAT aims at providing accurate and reproducible results on clinical material within the shortest possible time.

Blood Culture on BacT ALERT 3D automated systems for aerobic bacteria, fungi (YEAST) indicate positivity from 3 hours onwards.

Conventional culture for aerobic bacteria and fungi from clinical specimen other than blood is carried out on most appropriate media in controlled environment.

Identification & sensitivity of aerobic bacteria can be reported within shortest possible time on VITEK2 compact automated systems, thus reducing the time of availability of report by almost a day.

Thus organisms causing life threatening infections resulting in bacteraemia can not only be grown , but their identification & sensitivity is also be available in shortest time, which helps greatly in institution of early specific antimicrobial therapy.
