Learning outcomes

At the end of the training activities in the three fundamental areas (Microbiology, Pathological Anatomy, Immunohematology and Transfusion), the student must be able to achieve specific training objectives: 1. Microbiology Area: • prepare and use the main main cultivation areas; • apply all the techniques related to the sowing of biological materials, to the isolation and identification of the germs and to the production of antibiograms; • use the basic instrumentation (laminar flow hoods, thermostats, pipettes and micropipettes); • apply Gram stain and know the Zielh Nielsen and Giemsa staining techniques; • apply the techniques related to serological determinations and analytical techniques in microplate; • know the procedures and applications related to agglutination tests, immunofluorescence and ELISA and PCR techniques. 2. Pathological Anatomy Area: Histopathology Sector ; • recognizing and describing "non-compliant" samples; • know of methods of sampling of the surgical material; • knowledge of methods of processing the material and the paraffin embedding of the processed material; • use the microtome; • prepare sections of cryo-included material using the cryostat; • apply standard colors (EE) and the most used special colors (Alcian Pas, Giemsa, Masson, Gomori, C.A.B., Perls); • use the automated system for mounts and slides; • use the laboratory equipment by applying the methods of control and maintenance and disinfestation; • carry out quality checks before delivery of readings for reading under an optical microscope. Cytopathology Sector; • recognize and describe vaginal and extravaginal "non-compliant" samples; • prepare cytological preparations from biological liquids (urine, ascitic fluid, pleural fluid, liquor) using centrifugation and cytocentrifuge; • set up cytological preparations from sputum and bronco-aspirates; • know the methodology related to "liquid-based cytology"; • apply the smear and fixation methods on slide of cytological material; • perform standard Papanicolaou staining and rapid staining of haematoxylin Eosin; • assemble the cytological preparations. 3. Immunohaematology and Transfusion Area: • acquire the standard techniques for the preparation of the 1st and 2nd level blood components and their conservation; • recognize the validation methods of the blood components (legal examinations, interpretation of the results); • acquire the analysis techniques used in pre-and post-transfusion investigations, in Newborn Hemolytic Disease, Acquired Hemolytic Disease and in any other specialized SIT sectors; • recognize the methods for accepting the camps.
