The main activity of the Microbiology unit is diagnosing infectious diseases in biological samples collected from the animal by demonstrating the causative agent of these infections.
The animal species studied is taken into account when cultivating and identifying the germ and in the selection of the antibiotics to be tested in order to obtain the most appropriate antibiotic treatment and greatest therapeutic success.
Microscopic techniques, by staining or direct visualisation, allow a rapid diagnosis of the process.
This unit’s scope of action includes the parasitological study of samples such as blood, faeces, exudates, etc. with specific techniques for each parasitic species.
This unit also gets involved in studies designed to determine the bacterial flora in specific biological samples.
