Microbiology Laboratory

The ACWA Microbiology Laboratory, located at the University of Calgary Health Science Centre, is used to characterize the molecular mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance and transmission, and support enteric pathogen diagnostics and surveillance in wastewaters.  This laboratory will be a joint use facility accessed by researchers from the Cumming School of Medicine and the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Calgary. Collaborators from other Canadian Universities, the Alberta Provincial Laboratory for Public Health (ProvLab), Calgary Laboratory Services and the Public Health Agency of Canada will also have access to the facilities. The facilities are capable of investigating the full range of pathogens (bacteria, parasites and viruses) found in wastewaters.  The Microbiology Laboratory houses analytical equipment, including:
