A set of virtual, interactive bacteriology labs have been developed to allow the student to learn a variety tests that are done in a diagnostic microbiology laboratory to identify bacterial pathogens from patient samples. Each module demonstrates a different laboratory test, and the student is able to carry out and interpret the results of each test with controls and unknowns. Instructions are provided within each on-line module.

Each module can be accessed from the links to the left, and the module will open in a new window.
