The Microbiology Department held two sessions of microscopy review for Clinical Laboratory staff last July 8 and 12, 2019 at Laboratory Rooms 1 and 2.

According to RITM Microbiology Department Science Research Specialist II Ma. Stephanie Matira, the training was conducted to enable Clinical Laboratory staff in performing microscopy services such as gram stain and India ink that is only being offered by their Department.

This is part of improving our services and addressing the needs of the hospital in instances when inpatients require immediate microscopy results for treatment and management,” said Matira.

Sixteen (16) Clinical Laboratory staff completed the review.The Microbiology and Clinical Laboratory Departments work hand-in-hand in continuously improving the services being provided by the Institute.
