Part Descriptions

LP14082-9   Bacteria
One of the three domains of life (the others being Eukarya and Archaea), also called Eubacteria. They are unicellular prokaryotic microorganisms which generally possess rigid cell walls and multiply by cell division. They exhibit three principal forms: round or coccal, rodlike or bacillary, and spiral or spirochetal. Bacteria can be classified by their response to oxygen (aerobic, anaerobic, or facultatively anaerobic) and by how they obtain their energy (chemotrophic, i.e. via a chemical reaction or phototrophic, via a light reaction). In addition, chemotrophs obtain their energy from chemicals, lithotrophic from inorganic compounds and organotrophic from organic compounds. Bacteria are also classified by the source carbon that they utilize: heterotrophic, from organic sources or autotrophic, from carbon dioxide. They can also be classified by whether or not they stain (based on the structure of their cell walls) with crystal violet dye: gram-negative or gram-positive.

LP6760-5   Wet preparation
A wet preparation or wet mount is used to identify the cause of vaginosis, a general term for infections of the vagina. A drop of vaginal discharge is placed on a slide with a drop of liquid -usually water--which is then examined microscopically as an unstained wet mount or as a Gram-stained slide. The refractive index of the water improves the image quality. Wet mounts generally cannot be stored since the water evaporates. Glycerol or immersion oil can be used instead of water. Bacterial vaginosis, candidiasis and trichomoniasis are common diseases which may be diagnosed through a wet preparation. [Lab Tests Online Conditions:vaginitis/start/2] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
