Germ identification

The diagnosis of microbial contaminants can - depending on the task - be carried out at different levels. Among others, the following are used for the primary characterization

- Assessment of the macroscopically recognizable growth behavior also on selective nutrient media

- simple reactions, such as Gram stain, oxidase test

- microscopic methods

For this purpose, a powerful microscope is available, which also allows fluorescence analysis measurements.

Ultimately, a mass spectrometric analysis can help to elucidate the germ identity.
