    MIKROBIOLOŠKA ANALIZA MUMIJE IZ ARHEOLOŠKOG MUZEJA U ZAGREBU ----- U radu su izneseni rezultati mikrobiološke analize uzoraka uzetih s mumije u vlasništvu Arheološkog muzeja u Zagrebu. Uzorci iz oralne, orbitalne, abdominalne šupljine, te zavoja mumije analizirani su u Odjelu za kliničku mikrobiologiju i bolničke infekcije KB »Dubrava« u Zagrebu te Nacionalnom referentnom laboratoriju za sistemske mikoze Hrvatskog nacionalnog instituta za javno zdravstvo u Zagrebu. Rezultati analize su pokazali da organizmi ne predstavljaju opasnost po ljudsko zdravlje i većinom pripadaju gljivicama: Monilia spp., Penicillium spp., Alternaria spp., Aspergillus fumigatus, Aspergillus nidulans, Rhizopus spp. i Chrysosporium spp., te bakteriji iz roda Bacillus spp.

    English abstract

    In this paper we report the results of the microbiological analysis of the samples taken from the mummy from the collection of the Archaeological museum in Zagreb, Croatia. Samples were taken from specific places such as oral, orbital, abdominal cavity and bandages surrounding the mummy, and analyzed in Department of Microbiology and Hospital Infections in University Hospital "Dubrava" in Zagreb and in National Reference Laboratory for systemic mycoses of Croatian National Institute of Public Health in Zagreb. The analysis indicated that all of the found organisms were non-primary pathogenic and are not harmful for healthy humans. Isolated microorganisms mainly belonged to the group of saprophytic fungi as listed: Monilia spp., Penicillium spp., Alternaria spp., Aspergillus fumigatus, Aspergillus nidulans, Rhizopus spp. and Chrysosporium spp. and to the genus of saprophytic bacteria, Bacillus spp.
