: 11 Mar 2020 - 13 Mar 2020

: Berlin, Germany

Sector: Pharmaceutical

Type: Training

Join this hands-on, practical training and learn how to identify microbiological cultures. Get to know classical procedures for selection and identification.  Learn about the required media and modern rapid methods.   



Day 1

  • Introduction
  • Basic knowledge of identification of microorganisms
  • Handling and examination of prepared cultures from different samples e.g. environmental monitoring, water on contact plates, swabs, membranes
  • Preparation of pure cultures
  • Introduction into microscope work and identification of microorganisms including staining procedures
  • Practical work with biochemical rapid tests

Day 2

  • Overview Molecular genetic methods and Mycoplasma detection
  • Identification with Maldi-TOF MS and FTIR spectroscopy
  • Practice in manual biochemical identification methods (Multi-Test-Systems, additional tests) and special media, e.g. chromogenic media using the prepared cultures
  • Practice in molecular genetic rapid methods using the example of Mycoplasma detection
  • Practice in identification of bacteria, yeasts and moulds by MALDI-TOF MS and FTIR spectroscopy

Day 3

  • Analysis of the results from molecular genetic rapid methods, MALDI-TOF MS, FTIR spectroscopy and manual biochemical methods
  • Increasing laboratory identification system performance with the use of quality control - Usage of reference strains
  • Consolidation and discussion of all results from bacterial identification
  • Basic knowledge and practice of yeast and moulds identification including microscopy
  • Beneficial literature and helpful addresses
