ASM

Dear ASM Branch Members:

This past year the Branch Organization Committee (BOC) has focused on the ASM ‘value proposition’ for Branches and Branch members. One idea that has excited us is the opportunity to establish a Branch Group in the Community section of the ASM Website. Our survey has 7 simple questions in addition to 5 demographic questions. It should take no longer than 4 minutes to complete unless you have a lot to say to us!

The BOC believes a Group could be a valuable resource for Branches and we will work with ASM staff to create and manage the Group. However, without your input, we can not be certain that it will be useful to you, valuable or even relevant. Please help us by giving us your feedback.

Please click on the attached link to go to the Survey. The survey results will be sent to your Branch President and discussed at the Branch Officer’s Forum at the 2010 ASM General Meeting. Results will be reported in the aggregate only. Any comments you make either to your Branch or the BOC will be reported preserving your anonymity. Thank you for your time and your membership in ASM Branches!

- Mike Schmidt, Chair, Branch Organization Committee

The Anaerobe Society of the Americas is hosting an "Anaerobe Identification & Susceptibility Workshop" on July 7, 2010, as a Pre-Congress Workshop to ANAEROBE 2010.

The workshop will address techniques for identifying anaerobes based on phenotypic characteristics. These methods will include appearance on gram-stain, growth on selective media, susceptibility to special potency antibiotic disks, preformed enzyme reactions, and classical biochemical reactions. A discussion on sequencing 16s rDNA for difficult strains will be included. The Anaerobe Educator software program will be used to present test reactions and to allow for active audience participation in the identification of organisms. Susceptibility testing methods, including agar dilution, broth microdilution, and Etest will be discussed. Each student will receive a copy of the Anaerobe Educator. This workshop is accredited for 7.0 continuing education contact hours for clinical laboratory scientists.

Faculty will consist of Diane Citron and Kerin Tyrrell, of the R.M. Alden Research Lab and Mike Cox of Anaerobe Systems. Cost is $70, including continental breakfast and break.
