Anaerobic Bacteriology Workshop
19 April - 20 April 2001.
This two day, laboratory intensive course offers:
This workshop will present seven hours of lecture and seven hours of
laboratory. The lectures will describe the clinical relevance of
anaerobic bacteria, toxicity of oxygen, proper specimen collection and
transport, initial processing of specimens, use of selective media,
rapid and conventional methods for identification, and conventional and
newer methods for susceptibility testing. Also included will be an
update of the recent relevant taxonomic changes.
The laboratory will present 30 unknowns that participants will identify
to varying levels using rapid methods, biochemical fermentation systems,
performed enzyme kits, and profiles gas-liquid chromatography where
necessary. Susceptibility testing using broth micro-dilution will be
discussed, and participants will set up the "E-test" for MIC
determination. An interactive computer program "Anaerobic Educator" will
be used to familiarize participants with the characteristics and
identification procedures for 20 different anaerobes.
This program is intermediate to advanced level and is intended for
individuals with some background knowledge of anaerobes.
Instructor: Diane M. Citron, Ph.D., Associate Director, R.M. Allen
