Introduction Direct microscopic count yields a count of all cells both dead and alive. Plate count methods facilitate the counting of viable (and able to reproduce) cells only. In most viable count methods, a dilute sample of bacteria or other

Microorganisms, like all other living organisms, require basic nutrients, for the sustenance of life. The food material on which microorganisms are grown in the laboratory is known as a culture medium (pl. media) and the growth itself is called the
What is Monochrome Staining? Monochrome staining can be achieved by staining the cell rather than staining the background of the cell. The principle of Monochrome staining is based on the principle of producing a marked contrast between the bacterial sample
What is Differential Staining? This staining procedure utilizes more than one stain and differentiates organisms on the basis of the stain that they retain. The importance of such a staining procedure is that by staining the cells one can differentiate
What is Staining? Staining is a combination of physical and chemical processes. The physical phenomena include, Adsorption, Absorption, Capillary action and Osmosis On the other hand, the affinity of basic dyes for acidic parts and acidic dyes for basic parts
The instruments used in microbiology laboratories include so many different kinds of instruments that are very necessary for a lot of different processes or practicals conducted within those laboratories. Now we are going to study some microbiology Instruments, their principle,
Introduction “The term Phycology or Algology is nothing but the study of algae.” Algae are described as eucaryotic organisms that have chlorophyll and carry out oxygen-producing photosynthesis. Algal cell lacks a well-organized vascular conducting system and they have very simple
In this article, we are going to study Mendelian Inheritance its laws, and applications. Gregor Johann Mendel and Mendelian Inheritance “Gregor Johann Mendel is called the father of genetics.” Mendel was born on July 22, 1822, in Heinzendorf village in
