It is important to follow office procedures when obtaining specimens for testing purposes.46-*In Summary (cont.)46.8 When transporting specimens to outside laboratories, the medical assistant should follow proper collection techniques using specific containers provided by the laboratory, maintain the samples in a state as close to their original as possible, and protect anyone who handles a specimen container from exposure to potentially infectious material.46.9 Direct examination of culture specimens is accomplished in two ways: wet mounts and KOH mounts. 46-*In Summary (cont.)46.10 To prepare a stained specimen, the medical assistant must first prepare a smear, fix the sample to the slide so that it does not wash off during the staining process, and follow a specific staining procedure. The sample is then observed under a microscope for certain characteristics. 46.11 To culture a specimen, the medical assistant should place a sample of the specimen on or in a specialized culture medium and allow it to grow in an incubator for 24 to 48 hours.46-*In Summary (cont.)46.12 The process of interpreting a culture involves noting the characteristics and relative numbers of the colonies growing on the agar as well as any changes in the media surrounding the colonies.46.13 Performing an antimicrobial sensitivity test involves taking a sample of the isolated pathogen, suspending it in a small amount of liquid medium, and streaking it evenly on the surface of a culture plate. Small disks of filter paper containing various antimicrobial agents are placed on top of the inoculated agar plate and the plate is then incubated at 37°C, and the results are evaluated the following day.46-*In Summary (cont.)46.14 To implement a quality control program in a microbiology laboratory, the medical assistant should develop an up-to-date procedures manual; monitor laboratory equipment; monitor media, supplies, and reagents; ensure that the laboratory personnel are qualified; and ensure adequate space.46-*Each organism's environment, for the most part, consists of other organisms. ~ Kevin Kelly End of Chapter 46
