What is Growth? In microbiology, an increase in the number of cells is nothing but growth. The growth of micro-organisms may Halophiles are a group of extremophiles that require high salt be defined as development in cellular components or constituents.
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
What is MacConkey Broth? MacConkey Broth is a modification of the medium developed by scientist MacConkey. MacConkey Broth is used for the cultivation of gram-negative Bacteria. Storage of MacConkey’s Broth MacConkey’s Broth medium should be kept upright at 2-30 °c.
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? What is Differential Staining? Requirements Stains and Chemicals for Monochrome staining Procedure of Monochrome Staining Observation and result of Monochrome staining Fig. Some Common Shapes of Bacteria Fig. Result of Monochrome Staining Just observe the final
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
