Microbiology refers to the study of life and organisms that are too small to be seen with the naked eye. It typically includes the study of the immune system called immunology. Microbiology is researched actively and is a field which is advancing continually.
The Department of Microbiology at VMU is well-equipped with a student laboratory, research lab, museum, seminar hall, departmental library and microbiology lecture theatre. The diagnostic laboratory including a clinical microbiology laboratory functions round-the-clock and renders the essential services. The diagnostic sections of different branches like diagnostic bacteriology, aerobic and anaerobic culture, microbacterium tuberculosis, mycology and parasitology function efficiently. The virology section has a facility for egg inoculation. The serology/ immunology division has the ELISA reader and spectrometer. This department also monitors the operation theatres for sterility.
