Gram Stain

What

To detect the presence and identify the general type of bacteria or sometimes fungi (microorganisms) in a sample taken from the site of a suspected infection; to generally classify bacteria grown in culture so that further identification tests can be performed and appropriate treatment given.

Why

Detecting the presence of bacteria and determining whether an infection is caused by an organism that is Gram-positive or Gram-negative will be sufficient to allow a health practitioner to prescribe treatment with an appropriate antibiotic.

Preparation

Pus, body fluid, sputum, or swab of cells taken from the site of an infection; a sample of bacteria or fungi grown and isolated in culture.
