Limitations of the study include the fact that the clinical relevance of the end point of bacterial colony counts
"may be in question," Dr.
In the microbial growth study, all HuBA types did not show significant differences in the morphology and size of colonies as well as in colony count
in comparison to SBA.
The colony count
decreases after immersion in to household denture cleanser solutions like baking soda, Sodium hypochlorite, alcohol, vinegar, household bleach, and were clinically significant.
Unpreserved specimens exceeding the two-hour limit that have not been refrigerated should not be accepted for analysis due to potential bacterial overgrowth and invalidation of bacterial colony counts
Considering that colony counts
of less than 100,000 per milliliter are often considered clinically significant, the author decided that the cutoff should be less than 100,000; 50,000 CFU/mL was arbitrarily chosen as the cutoff for significant bacteriuria.
The colony count
that has traditionally been accepted as indicating a urinary tract infection 100,000/mL of urine.
The special OTs which did not possess any extra methods for air purification like UV rays, HEPA filters etc obviously had no significant difference in bacterial colony count
with general OT s.
A Urine colony counts
should always be done per isolate and not as a total colony count
of all organisms.
RESULTS: Mean viable colony count
for each test organisms was determined against each time interval for different dilutions of disinfectants and statistically analyzed.
Also, when reporting culture results, the hospital lab will report a colony count
and specific definition of each colony type, (e.
7) It was reported that a positive LE and nitrite had a sensitivity of 84 percent and specificity of 98 percent when the colony count
was greater than [10.
001 mL loop to do the streaking, the colony count
is calculated as: 50 (colonies) x 1,000 (the dilution factor) = 50,000 CFU/mL.
