Microbiology

Microbiology testing is used to find and identify harmful pathogens that may be causing illness.

This may include bacterial infection that has spread into the blood (such as meningitis, osteomyelitis, pneumonia or sepsis) or a fungal infection (such as yeast) in the blood.

HNL Lab Medicine’s Microbiology lab consists of subspecialties in:
  • Bacteriology
  • Mycobacteriology
  • Mycology
  • Parasitology
  • Virology
 

We offer a comprehensive range of testing using traditional culture methods for the identification and susceptibility of pathogens and microbial antigen detection.


We also offer advanced molecular diagnostic methodologies for the rapid turnaround of:
  • Group A Strep
  • Group B Strep
  • MRSA screening
  • Clostridium difficile
  • Influenza A
  • Influenza B
  • Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV)
