Colony Count, Microbial
(Agar Dilution Count; Bacterial Count; Colony-Forming Units Assay, Microbial; Fungal Count; Pour Plate Count; Spore Count; Spread Plate Count; Streak Plate Count)


Enumeration by direct count of viable, isolated bacterial, archaeal, or fungal cells or spores capable of growth on solid culture media. Each colony (i.e., microbial colony-forming unit) represents the progeny of a single cell in the original inoculum. The method is used routinely by environmental microbiologists for quantifying organisms in air; food; and water; by clinicians for measuring patients' microbial load; and in antimicrobial drug testing.
