Description / Abstract:
This practice deals with the performance characteristics of enumeration methods for microorganisms of health and sanitary significance. The performance characteristics cover membrane filter, pour plate, and spread-plate colony counting techniques. A performance characteristic is a quantitative, experimentally determined value that is used to assess the suitability of an analytical method for a given purpose. The performance characteristics dealt with here are specificity, including selectivity, recovery, upper counting range, and precision and lower counting range.
