bacterial colony

bacterial colony

A discrete accumulation of a very large number of bacteria, usually occurring as a CLONE of a single organism or of a small number. Colonies grow best on selected media.

The laboratory instruments are further categorized into anaerobic gas systems, automated gram stainers, automated petri dish fillers, autoclave sterilizers, bacterial colony counters, incubators, microbial air samplers, and other laboratory instruments; whereas the microbiology analyzers are further categorized into mass spectrometers, microscopes, and molecular diagnostics instruments.
A second approach is to take the bacterial colony of interest, expose samples of it to a series of antibiotics, and mass spec analyze the samples after exposure, looking for characteristic mass spec changes associated with growth inhibition.
The team made an integrated circuit, a chip that is an 'active' glass slide a slide that not only forms a solid-support for the bacterial colony but also 'listens' to the bacteria as they talk to each other.
