Version 2.74


An anaerobic culture is a laboratory procedure where a sample of tissue or fluid from a patient is placed in or on growth media (broth, agar) in the presence of carbon dioxide to induce the proliferation of potentially infectious agents (bacteria, fungi, viruses). Microbial growth is documented and the organisms are identified to determine whether or not a pathogen is present.Once a pathogen is identified, specific testing techniques can be used to determine drug susceptibilities for assistance in treatment.
