Chapter 2 Tools of the Laboratory: The Methods for Studying Microorganisms Many microorganisms can be cultured on artificial media, but some, such as viruses, can only be cultured in living tissues or in cells. Artificial media are classified by their physical state liquid, semisolid, liquefiable solid, or nonliquefiable solid ; by their chemical composition defined or complex ; or by their function enriched, selective, differential, transport, and so on. Microbiologists use five basic techniques to manipulate, grow, examine, and characterize microorganisms in the laboratory. The steps can be viewed as summaries of the laboratory procedures used in microbiology. Inoculation involves the introduction of a sample into sterile medium.
