Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms, such as bacteria, viruses, archaea, fungi and protozoa. Microbiology research includes fundamental research on the biochemistry, physiology, cell biology, ecology, evolution and clinical aspects of microorganisms, including the host response to these agents.
The diagnostic facilities provided by the department at Tirath Ram Shah Hospital equipped with state of the art equipment & and laboratories. The laboratory performs all types of Microbiological
tests, ranging from routine procedures to molecular techniques.
1. COVID-19 Diagnosis:
RT-PCR for COVID -19, COVID-19 antigen test, COVID-19 Serology (IgG/IgM)
2. Molecular Diagnosis:
The department of Microbiology hosts a state of the art BSL-2 molecular biology laboratory.
Hepatitis: HBV RT-PCR & HCV RT-PCR

Respiratory infection: H1N1 RT-PCR
3. Culture and sensitivity: for Bacterial infection
Blood Culture: Done with the help of automated BacT/Alert system, for error/ contamination free
result within few days
culture and sensitivity testing for detection of payogenic infection is done for various
samples like urine, CSF, pus , tissue, stool, sputum, aspirates, throat swab, HVS and many others
Antimicrobial sensitivity and bacterial identification is done through fully automated system for
accurate and quick results.
