Abstract

Bacteria are meant to be omnipresent and are mostly involved in lots of human microbial infections. Such bacterial infections can be identified by the different properties of this microorganism.  Bacteria are bearing several inherent properties. by using these properties we can differentiate, can check there presence and absence, can check their gram negative and gram positive nature and many more. The present review is therefore focused to combine different biochemical test in one article.
