    Field and topic: "Total Plate Count" - Microbiology analysis to count the amount bacterias.

    Sample sentence: Hi! Anyone knows what is the translation of "Total Plate Count" and "Coliform" in Spanish?, it is used in Micro. lab.

    Kindly let me know please. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Aleela, total plate count could be "conteo total en placa", (this term is perfectly understandable although I'm not completely sure if it is the technical term); coliform is "coliforme" (refered to the bactiria living in the intestine). Hope it helps.
