an artificial way to grow cells or tissues in the laboratory
an attempt to get organisms that may be present in the blood to grow and multiply
an examination of tissue to look for infection
an organism or colony of cell s being cultivate d in a laboratory medium (for instance, bacteria growing in a Petri dish filled with agar )
a particular type of organism or cell growing in a laboratory nutrient medium
a sample that is tested for bacterial growth
a test in which a laboratory attempts to grow and identify the microorganism causing an infection
a test in which bacteria or other organisms are grown in the lab from a sample of tissue
a test that is done to identify the microorganism (bacteria, fungus, or virus) that is causing an infection
procedure used to identify the source of infection; specimen of blood, urine, sputum or stool is taken and tested to determine the type of infection and the appropriate antibiotic.
procedure to grow in vitro.
To grow in a test tube; cultures can be taken from blood, urine, and throat secretions when an infection is suspected.
The artificial growth of cells, tissue, or microorganisms such as bacteria in a laboratory.
A lab test used to find and identify the type of infection. Bacteria in blood samples or other body samples are made to grow in special nutrients so that they can be studied.
a laboratory test that involves the growing of bacteria or other microorganisms to aid in the diagnosis.
A test on blood, urine, stool, or throat secretions to grow a specific organism causing an infection.
A laboratory test involving the cultivation of microorganisms or cells in a special growth medium.
A test done in the laboratory to find an infection. Cultures may be taken from skin, spinal fluid, blood, urine or secretions.
a method of diagnosis in which samples of body fluids are placed in a specially constructed environment that encourages the growth of infectious organisms, if present, so that they can be analyzed.
propagation of microorganisms or tissue cells in special medium conducive to their growth for the purposes of testing and/or identification.
A test to see if microorganisms grow in a certain environment
Growth of microorganisms or viruses for identification purposes.
Something used to determine the site and organism suspected in an infection. Or a medium used to grow or incubate cells.
To grow cells, tissues or organisms, often in a sterile dish, for scientific purposes
A sample of organisms taken from a site to identify the specific organism causing infection.
The matter produced by society and people; what a society cultivates, i.e. history, scholarship, philosophy, and media.
A group of living cells growing in a controlled, artificial environment like a laboratory.
In microbiology, a population of microorganisms in a growth medium or the act of growing bacteria in media for identification. A pure culture contains only organisms that initially arose from a single cell. Cultures are used in manufacturing cultured dairy products and most cheeses.
As a noun, cultivation of living organisms in prepared medium; as a verb, to grow in prepared medium.
a method of growing a microorganism or living tissue in vitro in a medium that promotes its growth.
A culture is the propagation of microorganisms in a growth media. Any body tissue or fluid can be evaluated in the laboratory by culture techniques in order to detect and identify infectious processes. Culture techniques also be used to determine sensitivity to antibiotics.
a microorganism, tissue, or organ growing on or in a media.
A special substance that is used to grow germs. It may also mean the process of taking a specimen from a person and putting it into the special substance. CULTURES may be used to diagnose certain STDs, for example, chlamydia, herpes, gonorrhea.
A population of microogranisms or cells that grow and multiply in culture medium.
micro-organisms grown in laboratory media/foods
1. To grow an organism. 2. the resulting growth. Usually on artificial medium. ( 15)
The process or technique of making body tissue or embryos grow in a culture medium outside the organism.
A laboratory procedure in which micro-organisms contained in samples of blood, secretions, or other body fluids are cultivated in special nutrients; used to determine the presence and type of infectious agents.
growth of living cells or microorganisms in a controlled, artificial environment.
a sample of a body fluid (e.g., blood, urine) or tissue taken to detect the presence of an infection and to identify the organism responsible.
special liquid used to provide nutrients and protection for growing embryos in IVF process; synonym: media
To grow microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi in a laboratory under controlled conditions.
a test to see whether there are TB bacteria in your phlegm or other body fluids. The bacteria from the sputum is put into a media to allow it to reproduce and test for vulnerability to certain antibiotics. This test can take 2 to 4 weeks in most laboratories.
In biology, this means to raise or grow an organism in a laboratory or other controlled environment.
The growing of microorganisms in a specially prepared medium. In dermatology, used to diagnose fungal and bacterial infections. Material is obtained from a lesion and placed in a test medium and allowed to grow. Within several days to several weeks a characteristic growth appears. Examination under a microscope identifies the exact species of infecting organism.
Cultivate cells or living organisms in a prepared medium under laboratory conditions. "Culture" is both the process and the growing cells.
A population of microorganisms grown in a medium.
A test in which a sample of body fluid is placed on materials specially formulated to grow microorganisms. A culture is used to learn what type of bacterium is causing infection.
To culture is to provide suitable conditions in a laboratory for a sample of living cells to grow and multiply.
Mushroom Mycelium growing on a culture medium.
Culture (from the Latin cultura stemming from colere, meaning "to cultivate"), generally refers to patterns of human activity and the symbolic structures that give such activity significance. Different definitions of "culture" reflect different theoretical bases for understanding, or criteria for evaluating, human activity.
