CFU’s are a unit of measure and stand for Colony Forming Units. After incubation, bluish colonies of bacteria should appear on the sample dish. It is then necessary to count all of the colonies that are in each dish. A calculation must be performed to determine the number of colony forming units per 100 milliliters of sample.
