Medical Microbiology: Designer of antibiotics to fight bacteria

What is the function of medical microbiology or MMB? Microbiology is the science behind infectious diseases. It actually analyzes how bacteria and viruses grow. Medical Microbiology also provides recommendations to physicians about the results from cultures and the treatment of their patients. The goal is to administer the right antibiotic for each infection.

At ADC the Medical Microbiology department tests if the infectious bacteria are susceptible for a specific treatment with antibiotics.

Head of the department Medical Microbiology at ADC is dr. Radjin Steingrover. The ADC Medical Microbiology department is just a call away from the Sint Elisabeth Hospitaal or SEHOS to discuss results of tests and treatments or, to recommend specific tests for patients.

Antibiotic treatment is always prescribed in case of severe infection.
