Bacteria can be divided into

Bacteria can be divided into:

  • Filamentous Bacteria (Actinomycete) Most capable of branching

  • True (Euobacteria): Divide by Binary Fission

  • Spirocheates: Divide by Transverse Binary Fission

  • Mycoplasma Which Lack Rigid Cell Wall

  • Ricketssiae, and Chlamydia which are strict Intracellular parasites

Classification of medically important bacteria

  • The Gram stain, t bacteria into two main groups, is the first step in bacterial classfication & identification. 

  • Bacteria stained purple are Gram + - their cell walls have thick petidoglycan and teichoic acid.

  • Bacteria stained pink are Gram – their cell walls have have thin peptidoglycan and lipopolysaccharides with noteichoic acid.


Classification of medically important bacteria

The Gram stain has four steps:

  • 1. crystal violet, the primary stain: followed by

  • 2.gramsiodine, which acts as a mordant by forming a crystal violet-iodine complex, then

  • 3. alcohol, which decolorizes, followed by

  • 4. safranin, the counterstain.


Is this gram stain positive or negative identify the bacteria

Is this gram stain positive or negative? Identify the bacteria.


Classification of medically important bacteria

Is this gram stain positive or negative? Identify the bacteria.


Classification of medically important bacteria

  • Gram staining tests the bacterial cell wall's ability to retain crystal violet dye during solvent treatment.

    Iodine is added as a mordant to form the crystal violet/iodine complex in order to render the dye impossible to remove.

  • Ethyl-alcohol solvent acts as a decolorizer and dissolves the lipid layer from gram-negative cells. This enhances leaching of the primary stain from the cells into the surrounding solvent.

  • Ethyl-alcohol will dehydrate the thicker gram-positive cell walls, closing the pores as the cell wall shrinks. 

  • For this reason, the diffusion of the crystal violet-iodine staining is inhibited, so the bacteria remain stained.

Microbiology And The Patient

Medical Microbiology – concerned with:

  • Aetiology (cause)

  • Pathogenesis (Mechanism of production of disease)

  • Laboratory Diagnosis

  • Treatment of infection

  • Epidemiology (spread, distribution, prevalence of infection in the community)

  • Control and prevention in community


Laboratory methods collection of specimens

Laboratory Methods: Collection of specimens

  • MicroscopyStained Specimens

    Unstained Specimens

  • Culture

  • Identification of the organism

  • Tests for Antimicrobial agents serology

  • Demonstration of Abs

6)Understand the proper use of Clinical Lab.

a)Specimen collection and handling

b)Requesting appropriate tests

c)Interpretation of results of Lab. tests

  • Correct selection, use, monitoring of anti-microbial therapy

  • Understand methods of prevention of infection e.g.Vaccine, chemoprophylaxis, hygiene, isolation etc.
