Introduction to Microbiology
It is indeed satisfying to notice that Microbiology is the 2nd Department added to Pakistan Institute of Professional Studies, Abbottabad after the department of doctor of pharmacy. There was a Dire need for establishment of such a department in view of the shortage of professionals in this field & also for improving the status of modern diagnoses of newly emerging & intricating diseases. These professionals can help in the domain of infectious diseases, food & pharmaceuticals industries & Hydrocarbons Microbiology.
This department will ultimately switch over to M.Phil & P.hD courses & simultaneously research activities & will be in a position to help for bacteriological examination of drinking water of the common folk, lab testing of specimens received from locals & interested hospitals & clinics, advice to the food & pharmaceutical industries like PCR ( Polymerized Chain Reactions) including techniques of ELISA, radio-Immunoassay & complement fixation tests. With the establishment of this department many, like Medical Doctors, Doctor Of Dentistry, Medical Technologist, Pharmacists, Food Technologist & other will be given the opportunities to raise the standards of their knowledge oriented towards their fields.
