$48.00

Contact Hours (Points): 4

This self-study course has been designed to serve as a review and update of the laboratory isolation of clinically significant anaerobic bacteria.

While the importance of this group of microorganisms as causes of infectious disease and death has long been understood, the anaerobes have, until recently, been isolated and identified only with great difficulty. Recent advances in technology have allowed the typical community hospital microbiology laboratory to easily isolate and rapidly identify these organisms. This course will enable participants to become familiar with anaerobes, the types of infections they cause and the variety of isolation and identification techniques currently available. This course was updated in 2014. The exam to the entire course is unchanged.
