Yeasts and ferments present in milk and milk curd.
Very small living organisms which can usually only be seen through a microscope (includes bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa).
Microscopic living systems, usually referring to bacteria.
living microscopic beings (ex. viruses, bacteria, yeast, mould, certain algae).
Microbes (see above) that live in soil, air or water. They can be useful or harmful (pathogenic).
tiny forms of life, including moulds, bacteria and yeasts, that are invisible until they are in large numbers.
groups of microscopic organisms, some of which cannot be detected without the aid of a light or electron microscope, including the viruses, the prokaryotes (bacteria and archaea), and eukaryotic life forms, such as protozoa, filamentous fungi, yeasts and micro-algae. [CUB] - a micro-organism is a protozoean, fungus, bacterium, virus or other microscopic self-replicating biotic entity. [FAO bis
The organisms which are invisible or only barely visible with the unaided eye.
Microorganisms are very small life forms that can be seen only with a microscope. They include bacteria, viruses, moulds and yeasts. Certain microorganisms can cause food spoilage and some of these (pathogens) can also cause foodborne illness.
Fungi, bacteria, viruses or other microscopic life-forms.
A microscopic organism, such as a bacteria, virus or fungus.
microscopic living organisms, egs. bacteria, yeasts, moulds
Single-celled living organisms too small to be seen by the naked eye. Some micro-organisms cause infections.
Living organisms (bacteria, microbes, yeasts) that can be seen only with a microscope. Micro-organisms that are likely to cause disease in other living organisms are called pathogens.
Organisms that can be seen only with the aid of a microscope. They are also known as microbes.
Microscopic plants and animals such as bacteria, molds, protozoa, algae, and small metazoa.
Collective term for bacteria, viruses and protozoa.
Microscopic organisms such as bacteria or viruses.
Small or microscopic forms of life, including bacteria, yeasts, fungi, and molds.
Organisms that are too small to be seen with the unaided eye. (Examples are bacteria and viruses.)
living organisms which are so small you need a microscope to see them.
organisms which are very small, usually containing only one cell and which cannot be seen by the human eye.
Bacteria, yeasts, simple fungi, algae, protozoans, and a number of other organisms that are microscopic in size. Most are beneficial but some produce disease. Others are involved in composting and sewage treatment. Milligrams/liter (mg/l): A measure of concentration used in the measurement of fluids. Mg/l is the most common way to present a concentration in water and is roughly equivalent to parts per million.
