Definition of Anisocytosis Anisocytosis is a condition in which the diameters of erythrocytes (red blood cells) are uneven. The term “aniso” means unequal, while “cytosis” means cell movement or quantity. Excessive red blood cell size variation, known as anisocytosis, can be quantified by peripheral blood film analysis as well as automated red blood cell size … Read more

Endospore Staining: Principle, Procedure, Reagents, Results

Endospore Staining-Introduction A vegetative form of a bacterial cell is a normal bacterial cell. It may multiply indefinitely if given favourable environmental circumstances like as nutrients, temperature, water, as well as oxygen. However, when exposed to unfavourable situations like a lack of nutrients, an inadequate supply of oxygen or CO2, absence of water as well … Read more

Flow Cytometry: Overview, Principle, Steps, Types, Uses

Flow Cytometry – What is it? For the detection and measurement of physical and chemical properties of cells or particles in heterogeneous fluid mixtures, flow cytometry is commonly used with laser-based technology. This technique has gained in popularity over time since it provides for a fast examination of various cell characteristics (including qualitative and quantitative). … Read more

Eosin Methylene Blue (EMB) Agar

Eosin Methylene Blue (EMB) Agar

Eosin Methylene Blue (EMB) Agar Eosin Methylene Blue (EMB) agar is a microbiological selective stain that limits Gram-positive bacteria’s growth while simultaneously serving as a colour indication for identifying organisms which help ferment lactose (e.g., E. coli) even those who don’t (e.g., E. coli) (e.g., Salmonella, Shigella). EMB agar was invented by Holt-Harris and Teague, … Read more
