Sabina Purkrtova graduated in Microbiology and genetics of microorganisms at the University of Chemistry and Technology Prague (Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology, Faculty of Food and Biochemical Technology) in 2007 and then completed her Ph.D. in Microbiology in 2014. She is presently an assistant professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology UCT Prague. From 2008 she is a team-member of the Testing Laboratory of the Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology No. 1316.3 (accredited CIA by CSN EN ISO 17025) as the specialist for metrology and MALDI-TOF MS microbial identification.
Her research and pedagogic work are focused on Food Microbiology in the fields of the detection and identification of microorganisms important for food safety and quality (by the cultivation and rapid methods as PCR and MALDI-TOF MS), food-borne bacteria genotyping, sequencing and gene expression, biofilm formation and antimicrobial resistance with the particular emphasis on the antibiotic resistome variability in the food chain and its connection to the other hotspots for antibiotic resistance emergence and selection.
