Microbiology is the study of microorganisms that maybe acellular, unicellular or multicellular and their effects on humans. Microbiology is concerned with the structure, function and classification of such organisms and exploiting and controlling their activities. Some of the important sub-divisions of microbiology are virology, bacteriology, mycology and parasitology. Microbiology is not only used on disease identification but also study ad exploration of microbes that have beneficial properties. These properties can be medically applied for antibiotic production and non-medically for industrial fermentation. Narayana Health has some of the best microbiologists
in the field, in Bangalore, that is supported by laboratory that has complete automation. They render exemplary services by right analysis of the specimen. The laboratories at NH are NABL and JCI accredited and provide round the clock services. More than 500 samples per day pass through the Microbiology and serology division and the turn-around-time (TAT) is minimised by complete automation of the lab. The BD BACTEC-FX blood cultural system is the largest in Bangalore that analyses 600 cultures simultaneously. Serology tests ranging from 4th generation ELISA to Torch Panel, Widal and VDRL and 25 other tests are performed in the laboratory. Technology is equipped to handle continuous operations that enables exceptional assay performance requiring small sample volume across a broad range of diseases.
