LAB REPORT 2 Lab Report: Identification and Analysis of Klebsiella Pneumoniae Introduction The current health care systems entail the need to ensure a succinct understanding of the identification and treatment processes concerning microorganisms and the corresponding diseases that the organisms create in the society. In this case, healthcare is of great essence to the society in that research on the causative disease agents ensures the attainment of prevention measures that would eventually prevent the effects caused by the disease mechanisms. Particularly, health care workers can facilitate the treatment of various diseases as their understanding of disease-causing mechanisms such as bacteria enables the development of treatment strategies associated with differential bacteria such as Klebsiella Pneumonia, which is attributable to the increase of cases associating with diverse pneumonia and bronchitis issues. Klebsiella Pneumonia is a gram-negative, anaerobic, encapsulated, facultative, nonmotile lactose fermenting, rod-shaped bacterium. The organism is a member of the human intestine flora and is frequently associated with hospital-acquired the infection. Klebsiella Pneumonia may be a standout amongst those practically critical causative creatures about nosocomial infections (Klebsiella Pneumonia- MicrobeWiki, 2017), especially in disabled patients and pneumonia brought about eventually perusing this living being may frequently be all the way troublesome with the treat. As a result, the purpose of this lab report is characteristic of facilitating the separation and identification of the unknown bacterium species from the plate given in two ways. One by gram stain then followed by other tests to determine the unknown gram negative microbe. The importance of identification of these unknown bacteria is to be able to identify it source to prevent its spread, which antimicrobial it is sensitive to treat patient.
