Food microbiology Lab !!


These are bacteria which maybe living in your food..these are common species of bacteria found in food. some of them are good bacteria such as probiotic (in Yakult yogurt drink). . here are some images and microscopic images of bacteria which i had plated (using spread and streak method onto different nutrient agar medium) taken from foods such as cheese, rice wine, natural yogurt, cereal, poultry etc.

Escherichia coli -green metallic sheen colonies...beautiful flora :)


mould-like bacteria with filamentous colonies..euwww

Salmonella sp. on XLD agar



so messy of bacteria colonies due to bad streaking technique...hihi blame it on me ..da jadi overgrown jek


Bacillus cereus on PEMBA agar medium





Microscopic image of bacteria from natural yogurt




p/s: food microbiologist do: responsible in making sure there's no harmful bacteria within your food and prevent you from any foodborne illnesses.. :)
fyi, there are good and bad bacteria living in this world.. i love microbiology more than genetics...huuuu
