Clinical Microbiology

The Clinical Microbiology section provides testing for the broad range of agents that cause infectious diseases. We identify bacteria, mycobacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses by culture, microscopy, antigen or antibody detection and molecular methods. We provide antimicrobial and antifungal susceptibility testing for clinically significant isolates.

Consultation is available daily by a subspecialty-trained clinical microbiologist to help with interpretation of test results or to determine optimal test strategies for diagnosis of infections. The laboratory endeavors to provide the most effective test methodologies for our patient population.

Consultation is available from the clinical microbiologist on call, who can be reached through:

  • The laboratory: (603) 650-7201 (5-7201)
  • The hospital operator: (603) 650-5000 (ask to speak with the on-call clinical microbiologist)
  • By page: 2291
