The first step in combating bacteria is to measure their presence. Microbiological hazards come in a variety of shapes and sizes. As a result, the most effective first-line tool is one that measures the total population.
In addition, microbial proliferation is easier (and by extension, cheaper) to correct or prevent in the early stages than later on. This means the ideal indicator is one that provides fast feedback, preferably in real-time.
