Bacteriology - Microscopic examination in neutral solution: wet mount and Gram stain
Description of the programme
These interlaboratory comparisons (AGLAE's programme ‘117’) address any laboratory carrying out microbiological analyses (medical biology laboratories, hospital laboratories, testing laboratories...).
Characteristics of these EQA:
- Neutral solution containing a strain for microscopic examination (wet mount and Gram stain)
- Possibility to self‐evaluate several technicians using the results file (provision of a sheet dedicated to your performance calculation).
- On-line data entry
List of parameters
Morphology, cell arrangement, mobility and Gram stain
Qualitative assessment of the morphology, cell arrangement, mobility and of the result of the Gram stain (Gram positive / negative)
Of interest to biomedical laboratories: an overview of the reported therapeutic orientations (bacterial type / antibiotic therapy) will be provided in the test report
The microscopic examination is also possible in blood : Bacteriology - Microscopic examination in blood - Wet mount and Gram stain
