Microbiological testing of food is the examination of the microscopic organisms in food. These organisms could be single cell, multiple cell or without cell. Microbiology includes various sub-disciplines like Virology, Mycology, Parasitology and Bacteriology. Microorganisms play an important role in our surroundings as all humans, plants & animals and probably they are the largest mass of living materials on our earth.
