Course objectives
At the end of this course, students should be able to understand basic methods of medical and medical oral microbiology.
Learning outcomes
At the end of this course, students should be able:
to prepare wet mount, Gram stained preparation, to observe the results in a microscope, to list other staining methods
to list culture media, their use, differences between them, to reinoculate a strain/specimen to a culture medium
to identify bacteria and yeasts by means of various methods of biochemical identification and other identification methods
to describe antibiotic susceptibility/resistance testing methods and to read their results
to describe animal experiment (only basically)
to read results of nucleic acid detection in microbiology (only basically)
to describe methods detecting antigens or antibodies, theire use for antibody detection/antigen detection in specimen/antigen analysis of a strain; to read the results of these methods including titers, titer dynamics, detection of IgM/IgA/IgG; to interprete the results; to describe precipitation, agglutination, agglutination on carriers, complementfixing test, neutralisation reaction, immunofluorescence, radioimmunoassay, ELISA, Western blotting
Besides that, students will be able to describe the basic of medical virology
  • S01 Safety in a laboratory, microbes and outer influences, decontamination methods
  • S02 Technique of work with loop, wet mount. Gram staining, demonstration of more staining methods. Demonstration of pictures of various organisms and structures in Gram staining.
  • S03 Bacterial culture, cultivation media
  • J04 Metabolism of bacteria, identification according to biochemical activity, modern identification methods
  • S05 Testing of bacterial susceptibility to antimicrobial drugs, detection of resistance factors
  • S06 Molecular methods in microbiology
  • S07 Introduction to serology, agglutination and precipitation, titres, dynamics of titres, complement-fixing test, neutralisation
  • S08 Reactions with labeled components (IMF, RIA, ELISA, CLIA/CMIA) including immunoblotting and immunochromatographic reactions
  • S09 Medical virology I (influenza, SARS-CoV-2 and other respiratory viruses)
  • S10 Medical virology II (hepatitis, HIV, herpesviruses, measles, mumps and rubella)
  • S11 Medical bacteriology I (easily culturable bacteria)
  • S12 Medical bacteriology II (bacteria with difficult cultivation)
  • S13 Medical parasitology (basics)
  • S14 Medical mycology (basics)
  • S15 No practical sessions (only exceptionally individual substitutions)
Teaching methods
practical training
self-study with help of e-learning materials
Assessment methods
Conditions for credits:
(1) absolving all practicals, with following notes:
- two justified absences or absences approved by teacher are allowed; students are obliged to show that they completed the knowledge (in laboratory reports and in their heads)
- more absences than two require a substitution
- not justified absences are not allowed (EXTRA PAYMENT IS REQUIRED FOR EVENTUAL SUBSTITUTION!!!)
(2) complete laboratory report (signature of teacher is not necessary)
(3) succesfully written final test, eventually more tests; date of all tests will be declared in time.
