Abstract: Diagnostic microbiology is a branch of medical science concerned with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases. The kinds of microorganisms that cause infectious disease i.e. bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses, and other type of infectious protein called proon. This study, studies the characteristics of pathogens, their modes of growth and transmission of infections. In this respect the entire field, as an applied science, can be conceptually subdivided into academic and clinical sub-specialties, although in reality there is a fluid continuum between public health microbiology and clinical microbiology or Diagnostic microbiology, just as the state of the art in clinical laboratories depends on continual improvements in academic medicine and research laboratories.
