Microbiology is the study of micro-organisms and their impact through contact with humans, animals, plants and the environment as a whole. In a world of "Superbugs," microbiology, a multidisciplinary science, is rapidly gaining recognition. The techniques involved in the detection and enumeration of microorganisms have numerous applications in food and dairy production, agriculture, medicine and the environment to name a few areas.
