Microbiological Evaluation in ilorin Metropolis

ABSTRACT            The presences of pathogenic microorganism in ice cream such as Salmonella Species, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli have been well documented, but examination of pathogenic bacteria like Bacillus cereus Yersinia enterocolitica, Brucella species and E.coli O157:H7 have been rarely studied. These studies indicated the necessity for a more steady microbial examination of ice cream since ice cream is particularly consumed by children of vulnerable age groups. Ice ...

Antimicrobial screening , nutrients profile and Pyhtochemical analysis of the leaf extracts of Tetrapluera tetraptera

ABSTRACTPhytochemical and Antimicrobial activity of the leaves of Tetrapluera tetraptera using aqueous and ethanolic extract was studied. The leave was observed to be highly rich in polyphenols, flavonoid, reducing compounds and alkaloids. Glycosides, saponins and tanins were present in small amount, there was absence of Phlobotanins, anthraquinones and hydroxyl methyl anthraquinones. In order to confirm the exact concentration of the Phytochemicals present in the leave of T. tetraptera, a GC...

MICROORGANISMS IN AQUACULTURE DEVELOPMENT

ABSTRACT Microbes found in aquaculture are usually from source water, feeds including augmented live foods. These microbes are found in the gills, intestine, muscles and on the surface of fish, shrimps, crustaceans and other aquatic organisms. Microorganisms in aquaculture play several roles including their use as live food, food supplements, probiotics, in pond aeration and in the purification of aquarium. As food, microbes provide the essential nutrients such as vitamins, enzy...

Screening of microorganisms in soil

Review on Microbiological Instruments

The most fundamental skill of microbiology is the use of the microscope. This earliest microscope magnified objects up to 100 times the objects actual size. Today’s 13 microscopes often employ more than two sets. The largest and most accurate microscope is the electron microscope that uses electrons in a focused beam to illuminate objects rather than light. The electrons pass through the specimen being viewed and are electrically focused. The teaching of such an important subject ...

Review on Metal Resistance and Its Association with Antibiotic Resistance in Microbes

Antibiotic resistance is recognized as a major global threat to public health by the World Health Organization. The major driver for the development of antibiotic resistance is considered to be the use, misuse and overuse of antibiotics in humans and animals. Non-antibiotic compounds, such as antibacterial biocides and metals, may also contribute to the promotion of antibiotic resistance through co-selection. This may occur when resistance genes to both antibiotics and metals/biocides are co-...

Review on HIV Virus

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and its subtypes are retroviruses and the etiologic agents of AIDS. Human retroviruses were unknown until the 1980's. HIV belongs to a large family of ribonucleic acid (RNA) lentiviruses.[21] These viruses are characterized by association with diseases of immunosuppression or central nervous system involvement and with long incubation periods following infection before manifestations of illness become apparent. Retroviruses are broadly classified into three ...

Review on Hepatitis E Virus and Related Viruses in Wild, Domestic and Zoo Animals

Hepatitis E is a human disease mainly characterized by acute liver illness, which is caused by infection with the hepatitis E virus (HEV). Large hepatitis E outbreaks have been described in developing countries; however, the disease is also increasingly recognized in industrialized countries. Mortality rates up to 25% have been described for pregnant women during outbreaks in developing countries. In addition, chronic disease courses could be observed in immunocompromised transplant pat...

Review on Microbial Ecology of Fermented Foods and Beverages

Fermented foods and beverages play a significant role in most societies and major contribution in fulfil the protein requirements of large population. There is a relation between microbial diversity of food products and health benefits. Yoghurt is a fermented dairy product, having several health benefits. Yoghurt starter culture consists of a blend of Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp Bulgaricus. Yoghurt is mainly of two types i.e. set yoghurt and stirred y...

Microbiological Evaluation of Bacteria Species Isolated from Zobo and Kunnu Sold in Olabisi Onabanjo University

ABSTRACTZobo and Kunu drinks are non-alcoholic beverage that is widely produced and consumed in Nigeria.The beverage may possess health risk when contaminated due to method of preparation. Zobo and Kunu drinks were purchased from different sellers in Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye Ogun State. Physical and chemical analysis of the drinks were carried out, involving pour plate were also employed to isolate bacteria from these drinks. The microbial qualities were determined using pour pl...

The antibacterial effect of the leaf extract of buchhozia coriacea

Abstract: This study was aimed at determining the antibacterial effect of the leaf extract of Buchholzia coriacea (Wonderful Kola) on nasal isolates. Nasal isolates were collected from one hundred students of the Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwash-uku, Delta State. The antimicrobial activity of the methanolic extract of the leaves was assessed against nasal isolated microorganisms (E.coli, Citrobacter species, Klebsiella species, and Proteus species) using the agar well diffusion method. Inh...
