Abstract


Choosing the method of bacteria identification is crucial to obtain accurate and quick results. This study will analyze the identification
results of Gram negative and Gram positive from aerobic bacteria by examination using conventional and automatic methods at Dr.
Wahidin Sudirohusodo Hospital Laboratory. A total of 85 samples consisting of 66 Gram negative bacteria and 19 Gram positive bacteria
were identified using conventional and automated methods. In this study, there was some correspondent identification result between
the conventional as well as the automated methods, namely 31.5% for Gram negative bacteria and 30.8% for Gram positive bacteria.
However, the non-correspondent identification result between conventional and automated methods was found greater, namely, 68.5%
for Gram negative bacteria and 69.2% for Gram positive bacteria. The non-correspondent identification result was due to the development
of bacterial taxonomy and the differences of numbers and types of the biochemical tests between conventional and automatic methods.
Bacteria identification using automated method is more accurate and faster than the conventional method, so it is recommended using
this particularly for the laboratory and educational referral center.
