Laboratory for Molecular Bacteriology and Mycology

A Brief Description of the Laboratory

Laboratory for Molecular Bacteriology and Mycology was founded on request of bacteriology laboratories of the Institute of Microbiology and Immunology with the aim of carrying out molecular tests for the needs of the entire bacteriology. The tasks that are common to all bacteriology laboratories are:

  • the need for accurate identification of strains on condition that classical methods fail to identify them;
  • confirmation of resistance and identification of resistance mechanisms of certain antibiotics on molecular level;
  • direct determination of the presence of bacteria in primary sterile cultures if the bacteria cannot be isolated;
  • application of different molecular methods for bacterial typing in order to find new sources of epidemics.

The laboratory has therefore developed several molecular methods, such as:

  • classic polymerase chain reaction (PCR), real time PCR, PCR-based sequencing, restriction or defining melting temperature (Tm) of PCR product;
  • pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), PFGE-based restriction of bacterial DNA, determination of plasmids contents, or delineation of bacterial strains;
  • electrophoresis for protein profiles presentation and searching for potentially significant bacterial antigens.
