Microbiology laboratories include Mycology, Bacteriology, Immunology-Serology and Virology Laboratories for analyzing culture samples of blood, cerebrospinal fluid, joint fluid, intra-abdominal aspirations, urine, wound, respiratory tract and stool.

Specimens are stained with certain dyes or they are directly examination under microscope. Microorganisms can be identified with automated bacteria identification system and antibiotic susceptibility can also be tested with same system. Viral diseases such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C, HIV and hepatitis A can be diagnosed on the same day with our high-tech devices. Serologic tests of Toxoplasma, Rubella, Cytomegalovirus, and Herpes virus are analyzed with advanced techniques. Reliability of our tests is supported by internal and external quality control tests. Scrape specimens are evaluated regarding fungal infections of skin. Candida species can be identified in samples, wherein fungus is isolated, within the same day. Analyses are carried out on stool specimens. Our aim is to render more advanced services by operating Tissue Typing Laboratory, as Organ Transplant surgeries are started to be performed in our hospital following bone marrow transplantation.​​
