Microbes, microscopic forms of life, are found throughout our living world. The vast majority of microbes are harmless or even beneficial to humans. Although some microbes are capable of causing serious or life-threatening diseases.The Microbial Serology Laboratory identifies disease-causing microbes (pathogens) through a variety of diagnostic laboratory techniques. The Laboratory detects these pathogens through isolation and identification techniques (direct identification), or through the detection of antibodies found in the infected person's blood as a response to the specific pathogen (indirect identification). The Microbial Serology laboratory also obtains information that is used to stop the spread of disease within a given community (outbreak investigation and identification).
