Clinical Microbiology is the study of any microscopic organisms which can cause infection in humans. Because the Microorganims are widespread in nature and some can cause serious human disease, this subject is often studied by the source of the specimen from the body – particular location, type of fluid or specific body tissue. Clinical microbiologists have to be able to tell the difference between normal and harm full microorganisms .. For example, E.coli are normal microorganisms in some parts of the body all the time, but when an outbreak of foodborne illness occurs, the medical lab scientist may culture the suspected food and perform specific tests in order to determine if a different, dangerous strain of the E. coli is responsible.
