Treści programowe przedmiotu
Students are familiar with the safety rules in microbiological laboratory: principles of laboratory organization and conditions of safe work in the laboratory. Review and current systematics of the most important pathogenic microorganisms; including obligatory and opportunistic pathogens - morphology, identification, virulence factors and pathogenicity, laboratory diagnosis, culture conditions, identification, growth characteristics, monitoring pigments. Basics of differentiation and methods of microbial cultures. Detailed diagnostics of selected pathogens by traditional and molecular methods. Isolation and identification of microorganisms, sensitivity to antibiotics and resistance mechanisms, serological reactions. Students are introduced to the issue of indirect diagnosis of infectious diseases using the most significant methods. They read the results of the methods and interpret them. Microbiological safety of drugs, foodstuffs, water and air, including microbiological purity testing methods.
