Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR DETERMINING NONPARAFFINOPHILIC MICROORGANISMS
(FR) PROCEDE ET DISPOSITIF POUR DETERMINER LA PRESENCE DES MICRO-ORGANISMES NON-PARAFFINOPHILES
Abstract:
(EN) A method of determining the presence or absence of a nonparaffinophilic microorganism in a specimen taken from a patient includes providing a receptacle containing an aqueous solution that does not contain a carbon source and inoculating the aqueous solution with the specimen. A slide having bound thereto a carbon source is placed into the receptacle. By analyzing the slide after exposure to the specimen, the presence or absence of a nonparaffinophilic microorganism in the specimen can be determined. An associated apparatus is also disclosed.
(FR) Procédé pour déterminer la présence ou l'absence d'un micro-organisme non-paraffinophile dans un échantillon prélevé sur un patient. On prend un récipient contenant un solution aqueuse sans source de carbone et on ensemence la solution aqueuse avec l'échantillon. On place une lame sur laquelle est fixée une source de carbone dans le récipient. En analysant la lame après l'avoir mise en contact de l'échantillon, on peut déterminer la présence ou l'absence d'un micro-organisme non-paraffinophile dans l'échantillon. L'invention porte en outre sur un dispositif pour appliquer ce procédé.
