Microbiology

Microbiology, the "study of small life", deals with investigating bacteria, viruses, single-cell fungi and other micro-organisms. Microbiology is broken down into various specialist fields, such as medical microbiology and food microbiology. Axonlab can offer a host of products for both these fields. This includes Axonlab's own products that it has directly manufactured.

AxonGram

For staining bacteria

Gram staining is used for the differential staining of bacteria for subsequent microscopic investigation.

Features and benefits

Gram staining makes it possible to split bacteria into two large groups, differentiated on the basis of their cell wall structure: Gram-positive and Gram-negative.

The difference in cell wall structure in bacteria is an important systematic differentiation feature, thus making the ability to differentiate them using Gram staining a taxonomic feature. Gram staining plays an important role in the diagnosis of infectious diseases. Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria can be treated often only with different antibiotics.
