Abstract

Rapid generation of microbiology results does not require sophisticated automated instruments. Many common laboratory procedures, such as microscopic examination of clinical specimens, use of manual screening tests, macroscopic examination of isolated colonies, and performance of rapid biochemical tests, can provide the physician with clinically useful information. These tests are neither expensive nor time-consuming and should be used routinely to generate rapid test results.
