Department of Medical Microbiology, 2nd Faculty of Medicine, Charles University and Motol University Hospital

Basic information

The department provides comprehensive bacteriological, virological, mycological and parasitological diagnostics using a wide range of diagnostic laboratory methods. Much attention is paid to the use of molecular genetic procedures in the diagnosis of infectious diseases, including both rapid methods for the earliest possible detection of infectious agents and panbacterial PCR with sequencing, applicable especially for infections caused by difficult or routinely non-cultivable microorganisms.

He specializes in the early detection and typing of pathogens in patients with cystic fibrosis, the diagnosis and epidemiology of Clostridium difficile infections, viral and fungal infections in patients with immunosuppressive therapy (including patients after various types of transplants), and the detection of serious nosocomial pathogens with multiple resistance to antibiotic preparations . Great emphasis is placed on the appropriate interpretation of microbiological findings, including consultation, which, among other things, includes the recommendation of antimicrobial treatment, especially in critically ill and immunodeficient patients. Part of the workplace is an antibiotic center striving to promote the principles of rational antibiotic treatment into practice.

The institute is an undergraduate and postgraduate teaching institution and is accredited for the field of medical microbiology. Research and publication activities are focused on the evaluation of new methods for the diagnosis of infectious diseases, updating or formulation of recommended procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases, the epidemiology of multi-resistant pathogens and the clarification of mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance.
