Hey all, sorry if this is below your level, but I believe this is the right forum for this post.
Can I simply determine if I have a viable or contam strain with my microscope (basic compound digital - if it matters) vs. noc'n a jar or agar and waiting?
Attached samples from last night. Realize I am coming at this from a high level, just trying to understand if microscopy is a valid method of determining viability more quickly. Happy to dig in deeper and document / track / analyze measurable results if helpful.
