The interaction between clinicians and microbiology laboratory staff has to be one of mutual benefit. The more the laboratory personnel know about your patients, the more meaningful and thorough will be the results. Communication is the key to success.

The clinician also needs to be familiar with and use the most commonly used diagnostic tests for individual bacterial pathogens appropriately.
