Based on the training of working under sterile conditions and handling of the microscope, the following contents are offered: culturing, enumeration and identification of micro-organisms in different materials, staining and physiological differentiation. Finally, a microbiological identification of a bacterial culture is independently performed, and this, together with the evaluation of all bacteriological preparations and a written examination, forms the basis for marking.
