Para Clinical Microbiology

HISTORY

Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms causing disease in human beings. Ever since Stanley medical college was renamed in the year 1934.Microbiology has been taught to the second year MBBS students. Since 1938 the department has shown enormous development.

The MD Microbiology course was started in the year 1981 with two MD seats which was initially affliated to Madras university and later on affliated to TN DR MGR Medical University in 1989.One additional seat was increased in the year March 2000 and all the seats are recognized by MCI.

In 1986 ,Department of Immunology was started as a specialization in Stanley medical college .

The MD.MICROBIOLOGY was started in the year 1981 with two MD seats and an increase of additional one seat in the year march 2000.All the seats were recognized by MCI . Numerous specimens were received from various departments. The department has been furnished with all the latest equipments for immunofluorescence ,HLA typing(live and cadaver organ donors),polymerase chain reaction.

Our department is recognized as State referral laboratory for HIV and STI infections. Periodic workshops, training programs and sentinel surveillance are conducted for Medical officers and Lab technicians. External assurance scheme workshop and participation is conducted quarterly and half yearly. The department also has all the latest facilities for post graduate teaching including adequate number of teaching faculty. Many CME programs and workshops have been organized by the department for inculcation of knowledge to PG students.

The Department of Microbiology headed by Prof.Dr.V.Dillirani has a competent team of one professers,four associate professers, five assistant professers,six tutors, seven technicians and nine MD postgraduates. Thework profile of the faculty include various activities like diagnostic and research activities, conducting theory and practical classes for MBBS students, MD Postgraduates, DMLT students and students of other paramedical courses. The department has 7 service laboratories.

DIAGNOSTIC AND RESEARCH FACILITIES:

The department of microbiology has 7 service laboratories namely bacteriology,mycology,virology,
immunology,serology,parasitology and mycobacteriology.

The central lab of microbiology department is located in the first floor of OP block in Stanley Medical college hospital where samples are received.It is provided with automated blood culture system. Processing of urine samples and rapid investigations are performed here. We receive about 8000-10000 microbiological specimen per month and about 5000 serology specimens per month.

Bacteriological laboratory is a state of the art lab fully equipped with latest equipments of advanced technology including Bio-Safety cabinets for safe working of the faculty.Here aerobic and anaerobic culture methods are done for identification and antibiotic sensitivity testing of the isolates are performed routinely. This department is also recognized as state referral laboratory for STI/RTI infections as per NACO (National AIDS Control organization).

Our virology lab runs special investigations like RT PCR,ELISA and immunochromatographic tests for detection of viral infections (like HIV,Dengue,Hepatitis B and C) and is a State Referral Laboratory for HIV as per NACO guidelines.

The Mycobacteriology lab is provided with fluorescent microscope for identification of Mycobacterium tuberculosis besides the conventional staining techniques.TB culture is being done conventionally and also by MICRO MGIT-an advanced equipment for detection of drug resistant TB strains.

In Mycology lab, besides the conventional techniques for culture and identification of fungal isolates from various clinical is being done.

The Parasitology lab caters the stool examination for ova/cyst by concentration methods and wet mount examination and modified AFB staining for coccidian parasites.

Screening of blood samples for infectious diseases is done in serology lab.

Immunlogy has been developed into a specialized department in 1986.It is equipped with facilities for ANA testing ,HLA typing and cross matching for transplant patients. tumor.Screening of tumor markers for cancer patients (CEA,AFP and Prostate specific antigen )is also done.
