Microbiology - Streptococcus species

Buy Images here:

Bacteria can be divided into gram negative or gram positive depending on their cell wall/peptidoglycan make up. Gram positive implies thick peptidoglycan layer and stain a purple colour.

There are two main spp of gram positive cocci that causes human infections. These are Streptococci and staphylococci, they are differentiated by two main criteria: first their ability to produce the enzyme catalase. Streptococci are catalase negative. Staphylococci are catalase positive, which allow them to convert hydrogen peroxide to water and oxygen gas. Hence on a slide or tube bubbles are formed. Second criteria to differentiate staph and strep is based on microscopic appearance. Staphylococcus spp are usually in clusters, where as streptococci are arranged in pairs, or chains.

Streptococcal infections remain a serious health problem worldwide.
The streptococci are divided based on their oxygen requirement are classified into aerobes/facultative anaerobes and obligate anaerobes. Here we are focusing on the aerobic and facultative anaerobes which make up majority of strep spp. I am writing aerobic here because facultative anaerobes are able to survive in oxygen.

The Gram- positive streptococci are then further divided into the haemolytic properties in blood. The streptococcus spp. are smeared in blood agar which is a plate containing blood. Haemolytic property of the bacteria mean the bacteria ability to haemolyse, breakdown red blood cells. Streptococci are divided into three haemolytic groups:
· Alpha haemolytic
· Beta haemolytic
· Gamma haemolytic

Microbiology, along with mathematics, chemistry, and physics, is one of the fundamental branches of basic sciences. The knowledge and detailed study of microorganisms and their functions can establish its use in a variety of applications, from medical, food and environmental, agricultural and industrial field.

Microbiologist Salary (2020) – Microbiologist Jobs

Microbiologists study microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, algae, fungi, and some types of parasites. They try to understand how these organisms live, grow, and interact with their environments.

Microbiologists typically do the following:

• Plan and conduct complex research projects, such as improving sterilization procedures or developing new drugs to combat infectious diseases
• Perform laboratory experiments that are used in the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses
• Supervise the work of biological technicians and other workers and evaluate the accuracy of their results
• Isolate and maintain cultures of bacteria or other microorganisms for study
• Identify and classify microorganisms found in specimens collected from humans, plants, animals, or the environment
• Monitor the effect of microorganisms on plants, animals, other microorganisms, or the environment
• Review literature and the findings of other researchers and attend conferences
• Prepare technical reports, publish research papers, and make recommendations based on their research findings
• Present research findings to scientists, nonscientist executives, engineers, other colleagues, and the public

Many microbiologists work in research and development conducting basic research or applied research. The aim of basic research is to increase scientific knowledge. An example is growing strains of bacteria in various conditions to learn how they react to those conditions. Other microbiologists conduct applied research and develop new products to solve particular problems. For example, microbiologists may aid in the development of genetically engineered crops, better biofuels, or new vaccines.

Microbiologists use computers and a wide variety of sophisticated laboratory instruments to do their experiments. Electron microscopes are used to study bacteria, and advanced computer software is used to analyze the growth of microorganisms found in samples.

It is increasingly common for microbiologists to work on teams with technicians and scientists in other fields, because many scientific research projects involve multiple disciplines. Microbiologists may work with medical scientists or molecular biologists while researching new drugs, or they may work in medical diagnostic laboratories alongside physicians and nurses to help prevent, treat, and cure diseases.
The following are examples of types of microbiologists:

Bacteriologists study the growth, development, and other properties of bacteria, including the positive and negative effects that bacteria have on plants, animals, and humans.
Clinical microbiologists perform a wide range of clinical laboratory tests on specimens collected from plants, humans, and animals to aid in detection of disease. Clinical and medical microbiologists whose work involves directly researching human health may be classified as medical scientists.
Environmental microbiologists study how microorganisms interact with the environment and each other. They may study the use of microbes to clean up areas contaminated by heavy metals or study how microbes could aid crop growth.
Industrial microbiologists study and solve problems related to industrial production processes. They may examine microbial growth found in the pipes of a chemical factory, monitor the impact industrial waste has on the local ecosystem, or oversee the microbial activities used in cheese production to ensure quality.
Mycologists study the properties of fungi such as yeast and mold. They also study the ways fungi can be used to benefit society (for example, in food or the environment) and the risks fungi may pose.
Parasitologists study the life cycle of parasites, the parasite-host relationship, and how parasites adapt to different environments. They may investigate the outbreak and control of parasitic diseases such as malaria.
Public health microbiologists examine specimens to track, control, and prevent communicable diseases and other health hazards. They typically provide laboratory services for local health departments and community health programs.
Virologists study the structure, development, and other properties of viruses and any effects viruses have on infected organisms.
Many people with a microbiology background become high school teachers or postsecondary teachers.

In this video, Stephen Hack talks about Microbiologist statistics nationally and across the United States. “How much does a Microbiologist make?” and “How many jobs are there for Microbiologists” are important questions for people trying to choose between different fields. Microbiologists are well paid professionals that play a vital role in our society.

Gram staining procedure animation - Principle, Procedure, Interpretation

Staining is an auxiliary technique used in microscopic techniques used to enhance the clarity of the microscopic image.Stains and dyes are widely used in the scientific field to highlight the structure of the biological specimens, cells, tissues etc.

The most widely used staining procedure in microbiology is the Gram stain, discovered by the Danish scientist and physician Hans Christian Joachim Gram in 1884. Gram staining is a differential staining technique that differentiates bacteria into two groups: gram-positives and gram-negatives. The procedure is based on the ability of microorganisms to retain color of the stains used during the gram stain reaction. Gram-negative bacteria are decolorized by the alcohol, losing the color of the primary stain, purple. Gram-positive bacteria are not decolorized by alcohol and will remain as purple. After decolorization step, a counterstain is used to impart a pink color to the decolorized gram-negative organisms.
Importance of a Gram Stain:
The Gram stain is a very important preliminary step in the initial characterization and classification of bacteria. It is also a key procedure in the identification of bacteria based on staining characteristics, enabling the bacteria to be examined using a light microscope. The bacteria present in an unstained smear are invisible when viewed using a light microscope. Once stained, the morphology and arrangement of the bacteria may be observed as well. Furthermore, it is also an important step in the screening of infectious agents in clinical specimens such as direct smears from a patient.

The Gram stain procedure enables bacteria to retain color of the stains, based on the differences in the chemical and physical properties of the cell wall.

1. Gram positive bacteria: Stain dark purple due to retaining the primary dye called Crystal Violet in the cell wall. Example: Staphylococcus aureus
2. Gram negative bacteria: Stain red or pink due to retaining the counter staining dye called Safranin.
Example: Escherichia coli
