Objectives of the Course

The objective of this course is to give information about culture media used for bacterial growth in microbiology.

Course Content

Preparation of media used for growth of bacteria and the growth of bacteria. Techniques of providing pure cultures. Macroscopical and microscopical properties of bacterial colonies and cultural properties, identification of bacteria according to their biochemical activation and antigenic structures. Dyes used for microbiological staining, simple and special staining methods. Biochemical test to be able to identify pure cultures and the determination of pathogenic properties of pure cultures.
