Anaerobic infection is an endogenous infection, and the disease spreads throughout clinical departments. Anaerobic infections can occur in various parts of the body and in various organs. Anaerobic test is to detect the presence or absence of anaerobic bacteria in the infected area.

Basic Information

Specialist classification: growth and development check classification: pathogenic microbiological examination

Applicable gender: whether men and women apply fasting: not fasting

Analysis results:

Below normal:

Normal value:
no

Above normal:

negative:
No anaerobic bacteria grow.

Positive:
Positive indicates anaerobic infection.

Reminder: Specimens must be handled carefully because exposure to air can kill anaerobic bacteria. Normal value

No anaerobic bacteria grow.

Clinical significance

Positive:

Central nervous system brain abscess, meningitis, subdural edema. Oral and tooth gum infections, periodontitis.

Otolaryngology otitis media, sinusitis, tonsil abscess.

Chest lung aspiration pneumonia, lung abscess, pleurisy.

Abdominal appendicitis, liver abscess, pelvic inflammatory disease.

Female reproductive system postpartum infection, ovarian and fallopian tube abscess, infection after gynecological surgery.

Osteoarthritis of bone and joints, septic arthritis.

Cardiovascular bacteremia, endocarditis. Soft tissue cellulitis, chronic abscess.

Positive results may be diseases: anaerobic pneumonia in the elderly, Clostridium wound infection precautions

Collect pus or body fluid samples for laboratory culture. Such specimens must be handled carefully because exposure to air can kill anaerobic bacteria and is of no value.

Inspection process

The colony morphology, hemolytic activity, pigment production, spore formation, etc. were observed, and the anaerobic bacteria were identified to the genus or species in combination with bacterial growth characteristics, biochemical test results, and the like.

Not suitable for the crowd

Those who do not have an indication for examination should not do this check.

Adverse reactions and risks

Generally no complications and harm.
