Total viable count (tvc), gives a quantitative estimate of the concentration of microorganisms indicate poor quality for drinking water or foodstuff in food microbiology it is used as a benchmark for the evaluation of the shelf-life of foodstuffs.
Microbial counting is useful in the basic sciences and is used determine the number of we will be using serial dilutions, plating and counting of live bacteria to.
Practically every phase of microbiology requires method for measuring microbial we use viable count to measure the number of cells in the sample capable of. Indirect counts of cells and direct and indirect measurements of microbial biomass each enumeration of microbial populations by viable count procedures.
Direct counting methods are used to determine bacterial concentration without numerous procedures in biology and medicine require that cells be counted.
