Biopathological -

In addition to routine testing, our laboratory also performs more specialized cultures of biological fluids.

Biopathological - Microbiological Department

Τhe reliability of the department is primarily based on the experience and specializations of the Head of the Department, Biopathologist Dr. George Georgoulias, M.D. Spanning 20 years as a full–time scientific officer at the Henry Dunant Hospital Centre, Dr. Georgoulias has been responsible for all diagnostic tests performed on patients who were examined in outpatient clinics. In addition, Dr. Georgoulias gained thorough experience through his daily work and his dedication to the subject, holding the position of scientific director of Locus Medicus microbiological laboratory since 2006.
Dr. Georgoulias’ and the laboratory’s expertise is centered around the infections, as well as the clinicolaboratory justifications, behind a couple’s infertility. This department is responsible for issuing case-specific treatment plans, and determining the guidelines that are to be followed for the treatment of more complex and persistent chronic genital infections. Additionally, his daily interaction and collaboration with his fellow clinical and laboratory scientists at Locus Medicus, has greatly contributed to broad knowledge of the nature of diseases at hand, as well as understanding of the measures to be taken for the prevention of future resurgence and relapse.
The Microbiology department staff consists of highly trained Technologists, with many years of targeted experience and knowledge. 
The laboratory has acquired all up-to-date certifications and frequently performs internal and external systematic quality controls. Access to reliable and accurate hematological results is of utmost importance to us.
The Microbiological laboratory performs all the classic microbiology tests, as well as a series of tests that require specialization and experience, such as the following:
  • General examination and culture of biological fluids (CSF, Pleural, Articular, Ascetic, Pericardial, etc.).
  • Semen examination (Culture and Biochemical sperm tests).
  • Stamey culture for examination of prostatitis.
  • Drug levels.
  • Detection of toxic substances.

Also, in our Laboratory, the following specialized microbiological tests are performed:

  • Rapid test Covid-19 and INFLUENZA A & B.
  • SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) IgM and IgG Antibody Test .
  • INFLUENZA test A and B: Detection of strains of influenza virus type A and B, including the most common in Greece H1N1 and H3N2 (Immunochromatography).
  • Special cultures: Fungal culture for onychomycosis and dermatomycosis.
  • Fungogram with reference method. Determination of the minimum inhibitory density (MIC) by chromatometry microdilution method.
  • MIC Colistin by plate microdilution method (standard method).
  • MIC Determination by E-test .
  • Phenotypic detection of resistance mechanism.
  • B-Koch culture.
  • Antibiogram for Mycoplasma hominis, Mycoplasma genitalium, Mycoplasma fermentans, Ureaplasma urealyticum, Ureaplasma parvum
  • Immunofixation of serum proteins and cerebrospinal  fluid for qualitative detection and identification of oligoclonal zones.
  • Detection of Legionella antigen in urine (membrane immunochromatography method)
  • Detection of pneumococcal polysaccharide antigen in urine (membrane immunochromatography method)
