diCELLa Petri Dish Counting System Application for bacteria counting on Petri Dish
Microbiology is the science of microbes (viruses, bacteria, protozoa, yeast-like and mold fungi), which is a broad and extremely dynamically developing field of science. Microorganisms have been identified in all environments, i.e. soil, water and living organisms. Understanding the interaction of microorganisms with the surrounding environment plays an important role in the prevention of bacterial infections of humans and animals, environmental protection and the development of numerous industries.
Due to the abundance of species, the most diverse group of microorganisms are bacteria. They are unicellular prokaryotic organisms that do not have a cell nucleus. The protein-lipid cell membrane and cell wall give the bacterial cell a characteristic shape that is a characteristic feature of individual bacterial species (e.g. cylindrical, spiral, spherical).
Microbiological tests are commonly used laboratory tests that are designed to detect and identify microorganisms in the blood, urine, saliva, sputum or swab of a throat, nose, ear, or oral mucosa. They are performed in specialized microbiological laboratories .
The world of bacteria has been the object of interest for many scientists for many years. The research mainly concerns the rate of bacterial growth on different culture media. Bacterial growth is a complex process that involves numerous catabolic and anabolic reactions that cause bacterial cell division .
By analyzing images from bacterial cultures with our application you will get an outline of bacterial populations , circularity histogram and population size histogram.
