Department of MicroBiology

* Concept and application of Next generation Sequencing Technology For AMR Study“

* Government Medical college Surat; Microbiology dept has initiated training program from 3rd to 4th june for ICU nursing staff of New Civil Hospital Surat to combat Global Antimicrobial resistance at ICU premises.



Department of Microbiology is providing laboratory services 24×7 hours since long in Government medical College through many laboratories parameter testing as per NABL norms. Daily sample load is approximately 400-500 samples for culture, microscopy, serological test. Also facilities for environmental samples, water culture, leptospirosis culture, Seasonal flu test , COVID-19 test is available. Department is actively involved in outbreaks, pandemics and is taking part in rapid response team during unusual finding related to health found in the form of epidemics, outbreaks etc. Laboratory is dealing with different parameters of Microbiological test through its updated laboratory facilities like bacteriology, serology, virology, molecular lab, HIV lab, C-DST lab for TB, VRDL lab. Department is providing quality reports through NABL accreditation and by participating in EQAS and recently scope of proving quality report has expanded to HIV viral load test, COVID-19 RT-PCR test, Liquid culture and DST for TB bacilli. Virus Research and Diagnostic Laboratory, is established at Department of Microbiology, Government Medical College (GMC), Surat in 2019 under the Scheme “Establishment of a Network of Laboratories for Managing Epidemics and Natural Calamities” to strengthen infrastructure of viral diagnostics in India by Department of Health Research, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India. It was the first laboratory in the region and one of the three in Gujarat that was started with the onset of covid-19 induced pandemic. With the excellent efforts from entire RT-PCR team especially during acute phases of covid-19 pandemic to till date, an estimated 12 lakh covid-19 tests (from urban and rural) have been done in a span of two years only. The existing capacity of lab is sufficient to conduct the testing of more over 6,000 samples of COVID-19 per day.Department has “Leptospirosis Laboratory And Research” which is only reference laboratory for leptospirosis testing in western India, catering services to whole Gujarat since long.Department of Microbiology is working as Human node stated from this year only-2022 in control of Antimicrobial resistance through “Network Program on Antimicrobial resistance, Superbugs, One health” which is funded through GSBTM. All the patients of new civil Hospital Surat will be benefitted by initiation and implementation of this project as antimicrobial drug resistance is at alarming level now as no new antibiotic residues are being developed and all the current antimicrobials are getting resistant. So awareness regarding judicious use of antibiotics and infection prevention and control measures by health care workers will be improved and any alert organism if identified early can be controlled easily before it causes harm to other patients. HIV viral load test is a molecular test which is started since last 2 years as per NACO program guidelines and funded by the same. With fully automated machines m-2000sp and m-2000rt supplied by NACO. We at HIV viral load laboratory are affiliated with 7 ART centres of South Gujarat for testing samples for HIV-1 viral load test 2200 samples per month. HIV viral load laboratory Surat is now NABL accredited laboratory as ISO 15189 standard.Under National Viral Hepatitis Control Programme (NVHCP), Department has started HBV and HCV viral load testing since last 2 years along with screening test for both and other viral hepatitis causes for prevention and control of viral hepatitis, with a view to provide free of charge screening, Viral load testing, treatment & counselling services to all, and specially to people belonging to high-risk groups.Through C-DST Laboratory for tuberculosis we are providing different diagnostic services as per NTEP with CBNAAT, Trunet, Solid and liquid culture and DST and recently infrastructure facility for LPA has been developed and soon will be started.

Goal and objectives of department:

  • Our mission is to offer inclusive education and create a continuous stream of trained medical professionals to cater to the emerging healthcare needs, to serve the community needs, disadvantaged and underprivileged people at most affordable cost.
  • Microbiological department commits to provide accurate and clinically useful results by using appropriate testing methods and upholding good Laboratory practices.
  • For quality we report the results of examination in ways, which are timely, confidential, accurate and clinically of use. The Microbiological Laboratory provides round the clock services to the society, for any outbreak department support, 24 x 7 , 365 days in a year.

Functions by Department:

  • Department of Microbiology offers various diagnostic services in the field of Bacteriology, Serology, Culture and Molecular testing for Leptospirosis, Dengue, H1N1, Tuberculosis, Mycology, Parasitology, HIV Laboratory which is:SRL (State reference laboratory)ICTC centre (integrated counselling and testing centre),PPTCT centre (Prevention of parents to child transmition),STI Centre (Sexually transmitted infections); having CD4 testing facility.
  • Covid 19 RT PCR testing has started since March 2020
  • HIV Viral load laboratory is functioning from 15 feb 2021 as per the Directives of NACO.
  • Our laboratory has started HCV viral load testing from march 2021 and HBV viral load testing from September 2021.
  • In the Microbiology laboratory majority of the tests are NABL accredited (National Accreditation Board for testing and Clinical Laboratories) which is a distinction obtained by very few laboratories in the country
  • Laboratory receives around 1,00,000 samples from hospital. Majority test are accrediated by NABL. The laboratory is committed to give timely report to patients and thus helping in patient care.
  • Immunology laboratory receives 200-250 samples per day. Laboratory is performing ELISA for many serology parameters like HAV,HEV,HBsAg,and few specialised tests like Measles,Dengue(IgM,NS1,PCR).
  • Bacteriology laboratory received 100-150 samples per day.
